My Approach to Helping
I have been working as a psychotherapist for 28 years. My specialties include helping people who are in transition, be that a new job, a relationship change, a health event, or divorce. I also focus on helping clients resolve anxiety, stress, and depression.
While some solutions may be practical, with a little time and attention, big concerns can not only be resolved, but in the process provide an opportunity for cultivating self-understanding and more meaning in life.
Clients tell me that they feel deeply understood by me. They say that I consistently find constructive, positive angles hidden in painful struggles, and that they feel clearer, stronger and a lot more comfort and peace.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
We all need to be accompanied, listened too, and supported to make positive change. Sometimes you can be surrounded by lots of people, yet you don't feel like they hear you or know how to help you with your concerns and worries. Therapy provides a private place where you can speak your truth. My job is to listen deeply, ask questions that provoke new thoughts, insights, and ultimately behaviors in you, and to do this with human caring and empathy. We need to feel comfortable and safe in order to speak our truth. To the best of my ability, I work to create that safe and supportive environment for you.
