The human experience is more than our behaviors and patterns. The bulk of it, is our inner knowing seen through the lens that we view the world. Often that inner voice, the part of us that makes us uniquely ourselves, can get lost when we experience trauma, fear, doubt, anxiety, loss as well as triumph, new chapters, and dreams coming true. My approach to therapy is uncovering that inner voice that guides us towards what we want, what we believe is right, and towards any healing that may need to be done. I work with adults, couples, and families who have fallen out of alignment, looking to restore balance to their lives.

You’ve heard the adage: “Don’t put the cart before the horse.” Yet many individuals in need of psychotherapy seek out therapists who offer easy answers and simple solutions for their woe. But the horse, or willpower, is left in the barn: e.g., it’s common for various problems to be framed cognitively and behavioral strategies and tools used to treat them. But might there not be an unrecognized basic insecurity underlying most people’s issues and recurrence, making negative reactions, powerlessness, cognitive distortions, behavioral avoidance, as well as depression, detachment or fear of rejection likely? Ah, the will-to-live.
