"I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults, children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions."

"My primary intention is to help people increase awareness of themselves in the present moment in order to facilitate the unleashing of innate potential. This often involves the exploration of disavowed parts of the self with the aim of integration and a sense of wholeness as a person. My underlying belief is that people can become more accepting of themselves and thus more able to direct their own lives in the context of an empathic relationship that provides the space for them to develop naturally and at their own pace."

"I provide warmth, compassion, and empathy with regard to treating my clients, and I focus on establishing trust, mutuality and collaboration throughout the course of psychotherapy treatment. I also believe that when clients participate actively and are committed to psychotherapy treatment a successful outcome and positive results are much more likely to occur. Thus, I tend to challenge my clients so as to help them gain insight into their problems, relieve them of emotional and psychic pain, become active agents of change, and to help them take control of their lives."

"I think of psychotherapy as a collaborative process and my style is interactive and engaged. I value people's strengths and maintain an open, empathic and non-judgmental position. Every individual and couple comes to therapy with unique needs, desires and history; so there is no one "right" way to work with everyone. Together the client and I determine what is most likely to be helpful. I have over 25 years experience treating all sorts of people, but I have a particular specialty in treating trauma and abuse survivors."

"Life can be very overwhelming and lonely at times. When this feels too much to deal with alone, psychotherapy can be a place to have someone else see your struggles and help you bear them. I believe that through a meaningful relationship, we can work together to help you understand why you are suffering and how you can have more options for relating to yourself and others. For couples, being in a relationship itself can feel impossible. Through allowing in a third person to witness your dynamics and understand both members of the couple, it can be easier to communicate with each other."

"I work with professionals who want to overcome persistent behaviors, thoughts and emotions that inhibit their ability to live a life they love so that they have meaningful relationships, deeply fulfilling work and self-confidence. My approach is based on the belief that in order to benefit from therapy the therapeutic relationship must be grounded in direct communication, collaboration and compassion. You need someone to be real who will both challenge and care for you. My patients often reflect they are relieved to finally work with someone who engages in conversation and shares responsibility for the progress of each session."

"In pain and struggle are also resilience, strength and even opportunity. Engaging in a therapeutic relationship is an act of courage and hope that can lead to relief and lasting change. You may be experiencing loneliness, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, loss, creative blocks or the effects of trauma and oppression. Maybe you are just not where you would like to be in your life. Therapy can help to create a more fulfilling life in part by deepening self knowledge, increasing resilience and mitigating the effects of early life experiences."
