"One of the greatest issues that people face in their lifetime is how to cope with death and loss due to divorce, chronic health issues, and any major life transitions. Unfortunately, all too often people just try to move on, doing their individual best to "be strong" and keep going as they did before. Your feelings of grief and loss can be more than you can bear. I offer a supportive and nurturing environment so you can understand those feelings, allow them to be expressed in a safe manner, and help you adapt to the realities of your changed life. "

"The way psychotherapy is practiced has a lot to do with the mind set and life experience of the psychologist. I have been in private practice since 1980, and beyond the traditional training for psychologists, I also trained extensively in an approach known as Psychology of Mind, or Health Realization. This is a cognitive approach that is very down-to-earth but rooted in principles akin to those behind meditation, yoga and similar traditions that were developed to enhance optimal human functioning."

"Counseling and therapy describe a relationship between two people for the sole purpose of helping one. My work centers on helping people become more effective in their lives and their multiple roles. Breakthroughs and revelations do happen, but they are far less common than most people think. The majority of therapy is, simply, hard work. Doing the work with someone you are comfortable with, whose only focus is on helping you, makes therapy a collaboration that most people find very helpful, often in unexpected ways."

"I enjoy helping adults of all ages move through issues to gain greater satisfaction in relationships, including the most important- with oneself. If our relationships are not supportive, it may feel we are missing out on the sweetness of life. I often use a cognitive behavioral approach, which is a way we gain greater control over what happens to us, and access greater choice in how we respond to events. It can help us strengthen communication skills, deepen intimacy and heal codependency. We can grow beyond lifelong issues; and replace feeling overwhelmed with feeling peace, learning to celebrate every step we take on our journey."
