"Looking back on 30 years in practice, I see a composite client losing inhibitions and conflicts interfering with having a satisfying work and personal life. Central issues are often connected to wanting to feel more whole and happy and to separate from while staying connected to family. Finding, keeping, or leaving a relationship or job are usually part of the work. Together, we explore and unravel emotional knots. New behaviors and skills are developed and used and by providing a warm, safe environment, the client changes, grows and thrives. Note: I am not taking new appointments for ongoing therapy. Consults are available for stepmothers/stepcouples."

Your life may have become complicated, you may find yourself isolated, or you may have become entangled in other people's problems. Feelings of hopelessness and resignation may have crept in, making it harder to make changes."

"One thing is certain in life: things always change. All of us encounter difficult changes, narrow passages that we must navigate: unemployment, relocation, breakups, divorce, illness, bereavement. We also experience good, positive changes. Ironically, these too can be quite stressful. Falling in love, getting married, childbirth, getting a promotion at work, any major accomplishment can precipitate uneasiness and worry. It can be tremendously helpful to have the attention, support and perspective of a thoughtful therapist. Together, we collaborate to get you through these challenges while, at the same time, being curious about the deeper meanings underneath the surface."
