No matter how distressed you are by symptoms of anxiety or depression - or by relationship conflict - I will approach your problem in living as a unique growth opportunity. Initially, I may help you to reduce symptoms of distress. I teach mindfulness skills which enable greater access to feelings, sensations and thoughts. This becomes a tool for deepening relaxation and insight. I will focus on developing a solid working relationship with you compassionately, and with respect . Then we can work TOGETHER to to create a sense of direction, or a road map, in order to find a way back to 'better'.

I have a broad base of training which includes psychodynamic (or depth) psychology as well as systems therapy. My lengthy exposure to strategic therapy at Mental Research Institute in California has contributed to my belief that understanding the context within which problems evolve and persist provides ideas for action in our closest relationships.

I did my Doctoral Dissertation on couples communication, and have had extensive multidisciplinary training in couples therapy. Over my 30+ years of clinical experience, I have developed a deep respect for and trust in the process of psychotherapy - whether with individuals or couples.
