My approach to therapy holds as a central idea that clients have a natural tendency toward health and healing. My job is to facilitate the healing energy that is present in each of us.

Psychology has to do with story and that is where we begin as we unravel a problem back down to its root cause. I am all about your personal story and how it relates to the story of your family and society at large.

I believe in personal miracles; I see them in my work very often.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Choosing a therapist is not like choosing other medical professionals and there are some specific things to look for. Do you feel comfortable in sharing your life with the therapist? Do you feel heard and understood by the therapist? Do you trust the therapist? These are questions a person should ask before deciding upon who to trust with your life story.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Nobody in this world gets away without struggle and I have had my share. My path has been at times harrowing and at other times exhilarating. I have been very discouraged and downtrodden and I have lifted myself up. I understand struggle.
