"I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families experiencing upheavals in life due to transitions, family conflict, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression and stress. My style is direct and interactive, exploring connections between the issues you are facing now and older behaviors and patterns of coping that might no longer be working for you. Our work can also draw on theories and approaches that focus on how interpersonal patterns affect our relationships. Together, we can come to understand and define the goals that will help you move forward. I help you redefine how you look at patterns and set helpful boundaries."

"Are you here because you're having a "dark night of the soul" and feeling hopeless? Or do you want to change a relationship pattern that keeps repeating no matter how much you try? Perhaps you want to transform your low self-esteem and FINALLY believe in yourself...You know that something has to change, but what and how? You have most likely thought yourself in circles around the problem, but you cannot think your way out of this one. Does all that thinking send you spiraling out and anxious, your inner-critic having a field day?"

"I help people to rapidly get to the core issues which keep them stuck in their lives, be it unhappy in their relationships, chronically depressed, angry, anxious, or just suffering. What almost always what creates suffering is the avoidance of painful feelings, either feelings from the past or recent events. When we avoid these painful feelings, we develop symptoms and suffer. The treatment approaches I use are evidence-based, meaning they've been researched, tested, and proven to work. And they lead to accelerated and long-lasting change, normally a fraction of the time it takes with other types of therapy. "

I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "

I work with clients one on one over the phone and/or web. If you're considering therapy, but could use coaching instead this may be the place for you! The main difference between coaching and therapy is that therapy focuses on the past and coaching focuses on the present and future. Coaching is designed to be a forward focused process. Coaching could be a very powerful alternative as there is room to work on pivot points as well as your potential."
