My Approach to Helping
Much of my work as a therapist is in the humanistic/existential mode. In this approach, the focus is on current issues in your life, self-understanding, values, and choices. You and I work collaboratively to build understanding and find ways for you to enrich your life experience.

I believe that childhood experiences continue to influence an adult's understanding and response to the world, and where appropriate I will work with you in a psychodynamic mode to understand these influences and modify their impact.

At times I may use the tools of cognitive therapy to help you change the way you think about issues in your life; such changes in thinking can often lead to changes in mood and greater emotional well-being.

If you want to improve your communication and relationship skills, I will work with you on skills for listening well and expressing yourself effectively. In this approach, I am influenced by Dan Wile's Collaborative Couples Counseling.

I am experienced in both short-term (10 sessions or less) and longer-term therapy, and I am willing to work with you in the time-frame you prefer. Of course, some goals require more time than others.
