"I strive to build a strong working relationship with my clients and be curious about their lives. Beyond that, my approach generally focuses on people's rich and complex lives. I focus on how people experience and express their emotions, paying attention to when this seems blocked for them. I help people explore life patterns, with an eye on supporting freedom and flexibility. I also pay close attention to the relationships and experiences people have with others. Finally, I always consider people's social context, such as cultural identity, family history, socioeconomic background, and education."

"Asking for help is an important first step in making your life better. I know it can be difficult navigating relationships - whether you're trying to find or maintain a healthy relationship - or getting over unhealthy ones. Overcoming the effects of childhood or relationship abuse, learning to control anxiety or compulsive behaviors in the way of healthy functioning, dealing with the challenges of sexual dysfunction or negotiating incompatibility in sexual desire - these are concerns I've helped individuals and couples with for 30+ years. My style is warm, nonjudgmental and interactive. I strongly believe that therapy is a collaborative experience."

"We can sometimes feel uncertain and trapped by painful emotions. Having a non-judgmental, supportive space to think through what feels wrong can be helpful. We are able to make new meaning when someone listens, helps us focus in on what is important, understands our challenges, and supports us to grasp more of who we really are. We begin to understand our own stories and shed new light on older, outdated narratives. We untangle from the repetitive pain we impose on our selves, family, partners, friends, and begin to take charge of our lives."
