"I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to address long-term problems and patterns. It is through this kind of personal exploration that a deeper understanding can be attained and the sense-of-self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive behavior. So often, past experiences can interfere with our present lives and we find ourselves suffering through repeated ongoing pain."

"Establishing a solid therapeutic relationship includes safety, confidentiality, respect, validation, support, patience,hope and a clear focus of therapy goals. I am interactive and collaborative in therapy sessions, helping individuals explore unhelpful coping strategies, heal attachment disorders, & explore the psychodynamics of what is really causing trouble below the surface. I employ both experimental and empirically validated methods that have been developed from the studies of the neurobiology of attachment, trauma, consciousness and mindfulness, as well as complementary traditions of mind-body healing. Partnering with my patients in the transformational process produces resilency that is needed for substantial change."

"Are you struggling with identity issues, relationship distress, and/or overwhelmed by your emotions? The life you dreamed is not your reality. Your reality is painful and lonely. You may have begun to believe that you don't deserve joy and pleasure, but you do. You've struggled. You've attempted change. Still no improvement. Now you're searching for more effective ways to manage your life/issues. If you're searching for a nurturing, respectful, accepting, collaborative approach, I provide that and a nonjudgmental environment. Therapy is scary but manageable with a supportive therapist that is a good fit for you."

"You have become more concerned about your teen. Perhaps this is due to increased anger or sadness that they are expressing. Maybe they have become more worried about their future or are more fearful and inhibited than their peers. Or maybe your teen "has it all together" on the outside, but you know they are going through a lot internally. They don't feel good enough or confident in their own skin. Or your family has been though recent transitions (a divorce, a move, a loss), and you know your teen was impacted, but they aren't opening up to anyone. Perhaps they even experienced trauma years ago, and it's now resurfacing. "

"When DIVORCE feels like the answer, and that thought breaks your heart... Overwhelmed by shock, anger, disappointment, regret and deep sorrow...frozen by confusion, fear, humiliation and hopelessness...exhausted by the constant flooding of these feelings which lead to bitter battles, and sleepless nights. A peaceful place with an understanding counselor can help calm your emotional tidal waves, stop intrusive, hurtful thoughts, and help you find your way again. Even if the cause is an affair, addiction, a bitter betrayal or a stressful life."
