My Approach to Helping
Awaken new possibilities by improving your life. For more than two decades I have helped clients work through and overcome painful emotions, self-defeating behavior patterns, and difficult relationships. I help them access their personal resources and develop tools to actualize their true desires. Many clients tell me that in the course of resolving their initial presenting issues they gain a valuable understanding of the underlying causes. They leave feeling better, ready to develop a richer, more meaningful life.
I view myself as a compassionate, interactive partner who can help you clear obstacles that stand between you and what you want out of life. My approach is informed by family systems theory and attachment theory. I also draw from cognitive-behavioral therapy and mindfulness-based methods.
I specialize in helping adults from dysfunctional or alcoholic families leave the pain from their childhood behind and move past their family legacy. I help my clients understand how their childhood affects them in the here and now.
