Fundamentally,I've seen that when individuals or couples give themselves the time and space, they have access to a deep self awareness.I have over 20 years of experience assisting people in discovering their worth,strength and self compassion.I encourage people to listen to their own intuition and develop a clearer knowledge of what brings them joy and well being. Often, culture, conditioning or self imposed limitations affect decision making.My main role is to help relieve discomfort by guiding clients in understanding what their symptoms may be communicating. Clients are then able to identify what changes are needed to bring more fulfillment to their daily life.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

I offer consistent support to individuals and couples during major growth periods.This is particularly helpful in maintaining perspective,gaining clarity and recognizing what issues from the past may be impacting the present. As a psychology professor, I maintain a deep respect and understanding for how our minds are valuable tools and how patterns form.I also continually see the wisdom of the body in guiding what direction might be needed and encourage clients to "Think with the whole body". My office provides a warm,non judgemental place in which to discover what most needs attention in your daily life. This focus allows one to make the most beneficial changes to their thoughts and future choices. Our work together may also involve book recommendations,writing, visualization and EMDR.
