"People seek therapy because of the challenges that come to them through times of transition. If you want to focus on healing without having to worry about a third party monitoring your personal struggles and demanding a diagnosis, I am happy to partner with you directly, creating terms that we negotiate together. Healing is likely the most important task that you'll tend to in your adult life. I will guide you in that process without pathologizing or labeling you. Becoming the fullest expression of yourself is a worthwhile and deeply personal task, not to be compromised by political systems."

"I am a Lacanian psychoanalytic psychologist. That means the core of my approach is to listen intensively to, and with, you for the surprises in what you have to say. Those surprises become opportunities to explore and express the ignored, or even unconscious, parts of your story, which promotes freedom from "symptoms" and growth as a person. I am also influenced by existential and phenomenological psychology, which means that I place much greater value on how you experience and talk about your life than I do on psychiatric categories, and that my focus is on your humanity rather than your conformity."

"There are no ideal clients -- there are only ideal therapeutic relationships. Every client brings their issues into session. As a therapist my hope is that we are able to address these issues with mutual authenticity. This authenticity comes from our mutual interest in honesty, presenting our genuine selves, and our willingness to work together in finding solutions to issues that impede the client's ability to live a fulfilling life. Authenticity is not age specific -- a 4 year old can bring as much authenticity to a session as an 80 year old."

"Relationships, work, school or life can be challenging. Fortunately, you don't have to be alone in figuring out what's going on or how to cope. Psychotherapy can be a place to talk to a caring professional who is knowledgeable and neutral. I'm trained to facilitate people's ability to be more adaptable, tolerate emotional distress more effectively, and make more functional choices (in romantic relationships, family interactions, the workplace, etc). I work with a diverse range of presenting issues and treatment desires. I work best with people who are thinking about or ready to change."

"Hi, since 1978 I've specialized in human sexuality, pornography problems, mood disorders, PTSD and Marriage Counseling. My comprehensive approach to counseling integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of life in a way which not only treats painful symptoms but also heals the underlying emotional wounds. I believe that empathic listening which understands without judging is the foundation of emotinal healing. Therapy is a process of gaining a wider perspective which reveals how past trauma are connected to present problems. Greater mindfulness reveals old and problematic response patterns which then can be discarded and replaced by new and better ones."

Maybe anxiety flares when you try to dial the phone, or your depression convinces you it’s not worth the effort. Then the "what if’s" show-up. What if they judge me? What if they think I’m just complaining? What if I fall apart and can’t put myself back together? What if this doesn’t help?
