I am committed to offering psychotherapy of the highest possible integrity. We know that the bond between client and therapist is the most important single factor in successful therapy. For this reason, I make every effort to ensure that you feel not only safe and supported in our therapeutic relationship but, more, that you feel free to explore even the most challenging parts of your own experience with me. This freedom to range into all territories of the psyche yields, I believe, the greatest possible healing.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am particularly helpful with couples in distress. In part, this is because I use a form of therapy, called Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), that has been proven highly effective across a large range of couples. But perhaps I am helpful to couples mostly because I am extremely passionate about bringing couples together. I spent many agonizing years as a kid watching my parents' relationship implode and I have gone down a long and sometimes painful road in my own romantic life. It just means a great deal to me to see people who love each other deep down taking the risk of reaching for each other again. It is the most beautiful and extraordinary thing in the world to me. I feel very fortunate that I seem to have a gift for helping couples do this incredibly brave and necessary work.
