The suffering we experience is so personal we tend not to want to share it. How can we open up about something that shakes us so? How can we bring someone into our pain? Psychotherapy, as I practice, is a gentle and respectful way that you can begin to approach changing those things that burden you. I provide a safe, trusting relationship where you are able to learn to comfortably live life again.

Our presence in family, relationships or at work comes with both benefits, as well as costs. The struggle to free ourselves from some of the troubling bonds in these parts of our lives results in emotional conflicts that can overwhelm. Psychotherapy can be about developing our ability to cope with these conflicts.

Practicing thirty years, I have treated a broad range of problems with a blended approach of family systems and cognitive behavioral therapy. My experience in the substance abuse field, working with adolescents and their families and the effects of divorce have developed a broader understanding of what it means to me to be a psychotherapist.
