My Approach to Helping
Work, school, children, parents, dating, partners, marriage ... all create joy and stress in our lives. How we respond to our stressors is intimately connected to who we are and what our life experiences have been. And so, your therapy needs to be as unique as you are and that is what I specialize in. I believe in using many modalities to help my patients create a therapeutic plan that works best for them.
My practice is the culmination of years of working with individuals seeking a better way to function. My work focuses on understanding oneself and how we communicate with our inner self and the world around us. And then using this knowledge to experience our lives in a new and more meaningful way.
Flexible schedule; can facilitate therapy using technology; specializing in cultural and family of origin issues.
More Info About My Practice
I realize that life itself is in constant movement that requires balance and focus. And if you find yourself in need of balancing life's challenges and are looking for "Meeningful" connections, I hope that you will give me an opportunity to work together with you.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
You are the expert in your life and your therapist has expertise in identifying life challenges and related issues that can become barriers to your being able to attain the quality of life you seek. So, working together with your therapist you can gain clarity in how various "roadblocks" have been hindering you in many areas of your life and this new perspective will help you move forward in life.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
A doctor once said to me, if you aren't comfortable with your doctor, move on. Find someone you feel good with. I was shocked. I had never thought about it being a choice. I stayed with that doctor until he retired. Your relationship with your therapist is an important connection in your healing process and it's vital that there is a healthy connection between you both.
Many of us have had a negative experience in important relationships. At times it's the other person and at times it's where we may be on our own journey. The important thing is to communicate our feelings. When you feel uncomfortable -- speak up. If things don't get better for you or if your therapist is unwilling to address your concerns, find a new one. The important thing is to continue taking care of your well-being and the reason why you sought help in therapy.
