I use an interactive approach to better understand your perspective, engaging with you by asking deep questions. We'll work in an inviting and safe space so you can grow and discuss your concerns. I'm interested in the role personal narrative and self-exploration can play in identifying patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving. This process helps you define your own goals.
From there, we'll discover the obstacles to reaching these goals, then explore options for removing these barriers. I use an integrative approach that is strongly grounded in family systems and psychodynamic theory. I've worked with a variety of populations, of various ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, and socioeconomic classes.
I'm especially interested in life's challenges, loss and grief, trauma, men's issues, depression and anxiety, and the creative process. I help couples, individuals, and groups, and am highly experienced assisting LGBT populations, especially with issues such as self-esteem, family dynamics, and relationships.
My artistic background means I'm fascinated by the creative process, and keenly aware of the need to support, nurture, and integrate the creative process into therapy. It's worth exploring the challenges of pursuing your passion while meeting the demands of daily life.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
A good fit is essential for good therapy. I offer and encourage a no-charge 20-minute consultation as an informal way to assess fit, either via telephone or in person.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
My approach is a 3-step process. First you, the client, determine what your goal or goals are regarding our work together. This usually unfolds in the initial weeks. Then together we determine the obstacles that get in the way of you achieving your goal(s). Finally, we construct a way to manage these obstacles in such as that you are now able to navigate around, over or through them. Our work is complete when this is accomplished. Initially, I strongly recommend weekly sessions.
