Are you having challenges in your significant relationship, or challenges finding a partner you can truly connect with? If so, I can help.

I have been a practicing psychotherapist for 34 years, and have worked with over a thousand couples and individuals during that time, specifically helping people have the kind of primary relationship they really want.

I see couples who come in for premarital counseling on a preventative basis, couples who are having challenges communicating effectively with each other, and couples in which there has been a breach of trust in the relationship. I teach NVC, NonVIolent Communication, for helping to resolve conflict. I use my own version of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness Based Therapy to help people recover when there has been a breach of trust in the relationship. I firmly believe that a relationship can survive almost anything if both partners are committed to being together, and my experience working with couples confirms this.

Individuals come to see me in therapy primarily because they want to have a meaningful relationship and something keeps getting in the way. I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy to address what might be preventing them from having the kind of relationship they really want, then to work, both in therapy and with homework outside of therapy, to resolve these challenges.

I have also been a Buddhist practioner for 25 years which radically informs my work. I teach Mindfulness meditation to help you increase your awareness and learn to be more present in your life.

In my practice, I work with people in 2 ways; in person counseling in Ashland or Medford, and online counseling with folks who may have an illness or disability that makes traveling difficult, those with time constraints, and people living in parts of the world where they may not have access to a trained, experienced English-speaking therapist.

Whether I see you in person or on Skype, as part of a couple or as an individual, it is my honor to respectfully accompany you on a journey leading to a fuller, happier, more meaningful life.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love entering your world and learning about what makes you tick. I love the connection that develops, and the quality of "timelessness" about this connection and our work together. It may be trite to say that my work informs my life and gives my life meaning, but it's true. I feel enormous gratitude that I am able to do work that I love.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

I believe that the single most important factor in choosing a therapist is the connection between you and the therapist. Of course, you need to know that the therapist you're choosing is experienced, licensed and well trained. But these guidelines apply to many therapists, and those that you feel an honest personal connection with are few and far between. I encourage people to interview a number of therapists until they find one with whom they feel comfortable and really "click".

Groups I Work With

    In my Ashland/Medford practice, I specialize in working with couples, primarily those with trust issues, women over 50, people in transition, and people interested in integrating their spiritual practice with psychotherapy.

    In my online practice, I work with 2 different populations; expats living abroad, and people who, for a variety of reasons such as illness, time constraints, phobias or locale have difficulty getting to a trained, experienced psychotherapist. I use Skype video conferencing or Face Time to provide counseling, psychotherapy and marriage counseling to both of these populations.
