I hope to encourage connections that lead you towards lasting change.

It can be hard to change our habits and ways of relating with ourselves and with others even when old patterns are causing significant emotional pain. For real change to take place, something beyond motivation and a commitment to change is often needed. What can make a real difference involves finding a receptive person and an accepting environment that fosters a deeper understanding of one's self. I strive to provide such a receptive and safe environment to my clients with the hope that they feel listened to, understood, and recognized in their desires to get to know themselves, to connect with others and to feel alive in the world

The key ingredients are often the collaboration and connection in the therapeutic relationship as well as the willingness of clients to consider novel ideas and possibilities for their lives and then try out new behaviors/coping skills. I work well with adults of all ages, older teens, couples and even families, when it is helpful to include a larger system to discuss problems, consider changes or improve communication.
