My Approach to Helping

I have helped individuals and couples with a wide range of issues for over 25 years. Each course of therapy is different, as it depends on and responds to your unique qualities, circumstances, concerns, and needs. Generally, though, my approach draws from various orientations, and emphasizes (i) listening attentively, supportively, and non-judgmentally, helping you to feel understood and accepted; (ii) enhancing awareness and understanding of feelings, and how feelings are related to thoughts and behavior; (iii) identifying and challenging counterproductive thoughts; (iv) helping people identify their "default" reactions, and enhancing their recognition of other options; and (v) encouraging and facilitating related change and growth.


In couples and marital therapy, partners often start with different perspectives: Often one person is more unhappy than the other; other times, both are unhappy but are bothered by different things or see the relationship problems differently. I try to create a safe and productive environment in therapy by (i) compassionately and respectfully understanding EACH partner's perspective; (ii) helping each person to better understand himselfherself, herhis partner, and relationship patterns; and (iii) identifying new, more constructive ways of dealing with feelings, conflict, and problematic aspects of the relationship.

More Info About My Practice

In contrast to big clinics, I am an independent provider with a private waiting room overlooking a quiet, peaceful courtyard. When you call, you reach my private voicemail, and I call you back directly. I accept many insurance plans, and would be happy to submit claims for your therapy with me.

Seeking help is a big step. Good for you for considering it, and thanks for considering me. Although there are no guarantees, research demonstrates that most people feel helped by counseling/therapy. I'd be happy to try to help you. Feel free to give me a call (608-271-8799) if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
