"At times, therapy can feel necessary in the short-term to help navigate a crisis situation. Other times, it can be a longer process of self-exploration and growth. My goal is to help you tell your story, figure out how to overcome stuckness, and live a more meaningful life in whatever way you define that. We will pay close attention to the patterns that frustrate you, the things you want but can't seem to get, the parts of yourself you want to express but remain hidden or misunderstood."

"For over two decades it has been my extraordinary privilege to hear the life stories of individuals who have engaged with me in the work of therapy. These unique stories, whether marked by suffering and despair, joy and happiness, were always about resilience and survival, and have taught me well the therapeutic value of narrative. This kind of listening is a partnership, a collaborative effort that is reflected in my clinical approach. I tell my social work students at Columbia that the most critically important tool they have is their ears."

"As you read my profile and wonder whether or not I'm a therapist you'll find easy to relate to and one who can help you accomplish what you want to achieve, perhaps you can also wonder how ready you might be to do what it takes to accomplish the changes you want to make. If you sincerely wish to solve a problem, connect more spontaneously and meaningfully with others (as well as with yourself) and/or bring about a fuller more satisfying use and embodiment of your innate capabilities, I can help you accomplish that transformation - sooner rather than later."

"My work is designed to help people's efforts in unblocking aspects of themselves keeping them from fulfillment and satisfaction, professionally and personally. I also try to uncover those "automatic assumptions" that people feel, but are erroneous, generating behavior that is negative and self-destructive. If you feel badly about yourself, it distorts your behavior, which then effects how others see you. People are often much too hard on themselves, and assume others are as critical. I also try to help people evaluate their relationships, and clarify their's and the other's role in conflicts."

There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones.
