I have over 30 years of experience providing psychological interventions with adults and groups. I work best with individuals and couples who are facing an array of life challenges and stresssors. Those who have a sense of where they want to go but who are having difficulty getting there. I provide a safe and nurturing environment in which the therapeutic relationship can grow. A place where obstacles, fears and stressors can be diminished and desires realized.
When I work with adults, couples, families or children I believe taking a collaborative and introspective approach to treatment helps patients access their own wisdom and healing potential. We can often become disillusioned with ourselves or others as a result of deep pain, wounds, and burdens that we carry with us on a daily basis. For many of us, turning away or avoiding these difficulties is a natural reaction and attempt to cope with these struggles. Despite the temporary relief that may accompany this style of coping it often maintains extreme beliefs, negative feelings, and unproductive behaviors.

I believe we all need a judgment-free safe space where we can mindfully explore what's going on with us.

My goal is to create that safe space for you; to provide a respectful, supportive and collaborative therapeutic relationship to unlock greater self-awarenesss, positive change, and a happier more balanced life.

Every client has increased my ability to help the next. My commitment to helping ease psychological and emotional pain has increased along with my knowledge, training, and experience.

Do you ever think... "I feel like I don't have any control over my emotions", or " I don't understand why I sometimes hurt the people I love", or "I feel so stressed out much of the time". Many of us want to feel better, but do not know how to use positive coping strategies to change our lives for the better. I have experience in helping with those difficult life challenges. I can help guide a person towards a more fulfilling and stable life by using a variety of techniques (CBT; DBT; or EMDR).
