Feeling restless or easily distracted? Lacking energy, motivation, focus, or direction in life? Spinning your wheels in your career or relationships? Prone to pleasing others at all costs, yet feeling unhappy and misunderstood? Always too busy to stop and smell the flowers? I'd like to help you become more empowered, confident, and satisfied through facing and letting go of your fears, irritating beliefs, guilt, and suffering, so you can learn to communicate more effectively and have healthy relationships. For more than twenty-five years I have provided time-limited and in-depth psychotherapy to individuals, couples and groups.
Within a compassionate, safe and collaborative environment, I combine different styles of psychotherapy including psycho-dynamic, experiential, solution oriented, cognitive, and mindfulness-informed approaches. For the past 19 years I have provided evaluations, counseling, and education on managing dementia, difficult behaviors, and caregiver burnout in inpatient and outpatient geriatric care.
My main goal is to facilitate your passage through major life transitions from leaving home, marriage, divorce as well as illness and grief. Above all I want to help you understand the impact of past relationships on the present and future in the service of mastery.
