"I believe you are the expert in your own experiences and the therapist's role is to guide you towards accessing the part of yourself that already knows the answer. Therapy is an opportunity to sit in a nurturing environment where anything can be said with acceptance. The gift of therapy provides a chance to hone your coping skills and bolster your resilience in your own time and at your own pace. In our work together I will meet you where you're at in your healing journey. You will have the opportunity to learn to activate your natural resiliency and self-acceptance to let go of shame, anger, or guilt that may be holding you back. "

Are you considering therapy? Just realizing things aren't working in your life takes courage. Making changes often stirs up more than expected. Professional support can be invaluable to personal growth and, yet, finding a therapist that fits your needs can be challenging. I offer a free initial phone call (typically 15-20 minutes) to help you determine if I'm the therapist for your needs at this time."

We believe that anger is a secondary emotion, usually a reaction to underlying emotions such as frustration, hurt, loss, or disrespect. Road rage, violent behavior, verbal abuse, aggression, intimidation, and lack of empathy, are examples of issues that benefit from anger management. The goal of our program is to teach people to identify, understand and defuse their own anger by learning healthy expressions of anger that are acceptable to society, so that violence and self-destructive behavior can be avoided."

This method is distinct from other approaches in that we do not seek to find what is "wrong" with the relationship, but rather we uncover the felt experience of love that has become "buried" over time. This method is unique in that the couple members speak TO EACH OTHER from the first moments of the first session and with the skillful structure the therapist provides, they discover how to create experience of loving and being loved that they have been missing.

Finding the right therapist is important because the fit between you and your therapist is critical to outcome. You must feel your therapist understands your goals and can help you achieve them.
