"Having studied and practiced psychotherapy for the last thirty years, I believe that the central element of successful psychotherapy is a respectful, empathic, and honest relationship. Within that relationship we will work on helping you understand how you learned to think of yourself and your place in the world. I believe that what we learn of ourselves early in life sets the stage for relationship patterns that either affirm or devalue us. The latter leads to depression, anxiety and other difficulties. Together we will work toward greater self-acceptance which can, in turn, change other relationships in your life."

"After nearly a decade as a private practice therapist, I am determined that my calling is to help others escape from narratives that no longer fulfill them. I engage in transformational work with men, women, couples, and families who are ready to explore the intricacies of their lives and discover explanations for the unproductive cycles they find themselves in. My experience includes work with adult survivors of childhood trauma, individuals living with anxiety and depression, and those looking to achieve more interpersonal fulfillment, better work (and/or school)-life balance, and a greater sense of purpose.

"My client base is focused on the addict and those close to them who have been affected by the addict's behaviors. Clients entering the practice have found themselves caught in a destructive cycle of behaviors; often wishing they could stop, but find themselves continuing the behaviors. Then, there are those the addict has betrayed and hurt deeply through his or her behaviors. The affect of the behaviors have often left the loved ones traumatized and in need of support through the healing process."

"Each of us shapes and is shaped by the relationships we have with others, with our bodies, with our stories, with our cultures, and with our worlds. We find ourselves here and now because of where we’ve been and what has happened, because of how we carry our experiences forward and how they have made us. I am awed by the creative resilience with which we integrate or shoulder the burdens we’ve felt. I find astonishing and courageous the ways in which we not only survive, but find ways to thrive, to express ourselves, and live into the fullness of human experience despite those things that have hurt us and that hurt us now."
