Many people come to me wondering why they're unhappy, anxious, or unable to find fulfillment. The problem may seem obvious but a solution impossible. The same painful experiences repeat themselves, but why? And how to change them? If we meet, I will try to understand you as fully as I can and to help you come to grips with your problems. In doing so, you may discover, as sometimes happens, that there are ways to experience yourself and others that are genuinely different from what you've known thus far.
In the nearly 25 years that I've been in practice, I've worked with individuals with widely diverse problems. We will work closely together to understand what is troubling you and how it can be changed.
Rather than focus on particular issues, I tend to focus on developing a certain kind of relationship. This is one that feels trustworthy and reliable, one in which you feel comfortable enough to talk freely about what troubles you, so that together we can find solutions.
