About

I believe in therapeutic conversation; I am not the 'expert' on your life; you are that expert. My expertise lies in facilitating dialogue that looks at the obstacles currently blocking your preferred vision for your current and future self. My ultimate quarry is change: not just the hoped for differences you may want from your partner, your job, your family, but the changes from within that you must incorporate. The old adage really is true: you can only change yourself. Truly effective therapy happens when you are honestly ready to tackle the person in the mirror.
I am interested in your core beliefs, perception, and behavior. We focus on action towards positive changes. I use several therapeutic strategies as therapy definitely is not a one-size-fits-all. Different modalities target specific issues; it depends completely on you, what you are working on, and what you hope to achieve.
I am a published writer and have taught college-level writing for years. Consequently, I pay close attention to your 'story': how you choose to tell it; what you emphasize; what you undervalue (often strengths and resources); subtle shadings between what's stated; your body language. Therapy depends upon communication.
