My Approach to Helping

In thirty years of practice, my joy and excitement about doing therapy has never waned. I love the partnership aspect of therapy as we work together to take you where you want to go. I believe that most of us can access our inner abilities to change with the support of a compassionate and experienced advocate. Because each of us is unique, it is important to me that I work with YOU, the individual, learning about your strengths, challenges, sensitivities, etc. It has always been essential to me to continue training and adding to my therapeutic "toolkit" so that together we can navigate the best possible journey to your goals.

More Info About My Practice

My practice is welcoming of all religions, races, sexual orientations, gender-identifications, etc.
I have evening appointment times ('til 9 p.m.) four nights a week. I schedule online and phone appointments during both office and non-office hours.
Most of the time my practice is about 50% couples and the other 50% individual.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

First of all, "therapy" is a misnomer in that it isn't about what I do to you to "fix" something. The old medical model really doesn't apply here! It is instead about what we do together to move things along. I believe all of us have times when we feel stuck. Sometimes we are trying to adapt to blows life has dealt us. Other times, we feel bogged down or even have tried unsuccessfully to change patterns of thinking or behavior. (I know I have experienced all of the above.) It just means we are human. So, wanting to change, and grow, in my opinion, demonstrate that you have the excitement of vision, the wisdom to know that digging into the mystery of you can yield great benefits, and the courage and creativity to explore and to forge ahead!
