"I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being."

"*I am currently accepting new clients.* We, you and me, are parts of a bigger picture -- like a puzzle, an engine, or an ecosystem. (I favor metaphors.) Our lives are connected to the people around us, as well as the people no longer here. We process our personal lives while overlapping with friends, family, partners, coworkers, and even silently among strangers on the train. No one is alone, and yet feeling alone is sometimes a consequence of life in the city, a family, or a relationship. When I’m working with an individual, couple, or family, the entire unit is my client. "

Sexual difficulties and dissatisfaction are surprisingly common. In fact, most of us will experience some sexual difficulties even in the best of relationships and at the best of times. However, misunderstood and unaddressed sexual difficulties can have a domino effect, negatively impacting how you view yourself, your partner, and your relationship.
