We are not meant to live life alone, but rather deeply involved in relationships. Some of these relationships are highly successful, while others have come with great loss, significant struggle or just the every day difficulty of learning to live and enjoy life with another person. I believe in the value of working through personal problems in the context of building stronger relationships. I will help you work through this on a personal level or with whomever you are needing to have a restored relationship with.

My approach concentrates on thought and behavior patterns, relationship dynamics, and how these combine to affect you daily.
You may find the life you are living isn't healthy, or is in need of some change. With 19+ years in private practice, I have had the opportunity to help men and women make significant improvements in their relationships and in their life direction. If you are an individual needing to make a significant change, or a couple needing relationship help, I offer an individualized and practical approach. First, we will find what isn't working for you and identify the core changes you want to make. Then, together we will map out realistic steps to make that change happen.

I believe that the best therapy outcomes arise from a healthy therapeutic relationship, and I work with my clients to co-create a compassionate personal connection.
My approach to psychotherapy is largely informed by the Analytical Psychology of Carl Jung. I believe in a theory of personal development that emphasizes the integration of all parts of the self into an experience of personal wholeness. This work is often referred to as "depth" psychology because it requires some familiarity and/or curiosity about one's own inner-world. We may explore the symbolic direction of dreams, psychological complexes, relationship patterns, family of origin dynamics, personal self-concepts, trauma histories, spiritual sensibilities, identity issues, personal purpose, & how the psyche manifests in the body.

These issues include relationship issues, life transitions, abuse, depression, eating disorders, grief, stress, anxiety, sexual identity, and parenting issues. I believe we all go through difficult periods in our lives where we need someone to talk to who can give understanding, support, guidance, tools, and suggestions. I believe that counseling can often help our lives become less painful but instead become more hopeful and fulfilling.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
