I offer psychotherapy and coaching for individuals and couples. My approach is collaborative, warm, and very interactive, lending itself easily to both short term goal oriented work and long term depth exploration. I believe that therapy should provide useful day to day tools for lasting change. To that end I specialize in helping couples communicate with one another in a manner that is collaborative rather than aggressive. I also offer professional coaching designed to help individuals better their communication skills in interpersonal relationships and the workplace.

Psychotherapy isn't one size fits all. It's a unique relationship that develops and responds to your needs, life-experiences, ethnic/cultural identity, challenges and resources. You may be feeling stuck-repeating painful patterns, wanting to make changes but not knowing how. Or you're a survivor of sexual violence and the ways you've been coping aren't working anymore. I meet you where you are and bring my clinical and life experience, deep listening, compassion, acceptance, warmth and creativity. Together we create and draw on the power of a safe, accepting therapeutic relationship to support your growth and wholeness.

My focus is to develop a relationship with the client. This is called the two person model which is different than the old fashion practice where the doctor is one up and the client is one down. Rather, the two person model attempts to understand the client through questions and mutual discussion. I am not a silent therapist. I give feedback and remain fully engaged with the patient. Together we build a rapport. I adhere to a humanistic approach.

An area of focus in my practice is working with parents, couples and families in times of adjustment and transition, particularly in the early years of parenthood. Parenthood can be very demanding especially when you're trying to maintain a career and relationships with your partner, family and friends. I work with clients to give them communication tools and self-care strategies as well as increasing self-awareness and personal insight.

My style of engagement is non-hierarchical and non-pathologizing, and is rooted in and guided by a spirit of loving curiosity, compassion, and camaraderie. I am candid and enjoy *keeping it real* in ways that invite the authenticity and honesty that fuel growth and change. At the same time, I work with sensitive awareness and caring of the many aspects of each individual, of each aspect’s unique needs and desires, and of the need of each to be seen, understood and supported. This approach is the foundation for the collaborative work I do with my clients.

I bring to my private practice 36 years of experience and training in couple dynamics, attachment, sexuality and family systems. When couples first contact me, they have often been struggling with strained, stuck and reactive relationship patterns for a long time. They have hurt one another by attempting various ineffective solutions such as fighting-to-win, resentful compliance, disengagement, dulled sexual desire, infidelities, freezing in hopelessness. These are all an attempt to manage the anxiety and discomfort often inherent in long-term relationship challenges. Naturally, there is discouragement and worry.

Creativity can be foundational to positive and longstanding change. We come into the world with an innate skill to solve the many problems that arise during development. Sometimes these solutions bring up new challenges or get in the way of our relationships and our ability to enjoy life. I work with children, adults, elders, and couples who are struggling to adapt to a stressful world. By developing a trusting relationship where exploration is welcomed and analyzed, we are able to find new ways of functioning, new solutions to our interpersonal conflicts, and improve our ability to flexibly adapt to our changing world.

It feels like you're at a breaking point, something's got to give, so you're thinking "well, maybe I'll give therapy a try before I just accept that this is how things are for me." You may feel like there's something wrong with you, that you're alienated and alone in this. I can assure you that you're not alone. I offer a safe space to co-explore what's been bringing you down, the underlying beliefs, past traumas, and ruptures in relationship that have helped to inform your present experience. You can and will create a more useful story that isn't so hard to bare, it may even propel you faster towards what you want and need.

My training is based in a combination of psychodynamic and experiential psychotherapy. My emphasis is to facilitate a therapeutic relationship where vulnerable feelings can be safely expressed. Symptoms of anxiety, depression, addiction... can be seen as invitations from the psyche to explore our internal world with understanding and compassion. Psychotherapy provides a safe place for this internal exploration within a caring relationship of respect.
