My Approach to Helping

I provide a safe space where clients can explore their feelings, manage difficult challenges, resolve losses, talk about their feelings, and come to terms with important life issues. If you're struggling to deal with a significant challenge, need help resolving long-term problems, want assistance finding self-acceptance and peace of mind, or need help creating new understandings and meaningful solutions, I offer you experienced, attentive, and accepting therapy where you can accomplish your goals.

When you have a safe place to express yourself freely, it becomes easier to achieve resolution, peace of mind, and understanding. I've offered insightful, compassionate, and solid therapeutic space for my clients for more than 40 years. I help my clients find solutions, talk, and heal.

More Info About My Practice

Therapy begins with an assessment in the form of a narrative exploration of what brings you into treatment. This is not a structured interview but rather a discussion aimed at addressing the experiences that have brought you to therapy. Assessment is an ongoing part of the therapeutic process that may also involve in-depth exploration, problem solving, developing coping skills, dealing with relationship issues and managing self-destructive behaviors.

For some, therapy is a process of self-discovery, a new beginning. For others it is a process of finding a resolution to a specific problem. My approach is to develop a plan that meets your specific needs. I listen carefully to what you say, work with you to solve the problems you are confronting and help you find your own way forward.

Whether you need to regain control of your life because of grief, trauma, addiction, self-esteem difficulties, depression, anxiety, divorce, or relationship issues, I can help you in rebuilding your life, and in finding hope and new directions.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I treat complicated grief and trauma, addictions (drug/alcohol, sex/love), anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, shame, guilt and deep life dissatisfactions; I work with persons who have had damaging childhood experiences, diverse life losses, relationship difficulties, major transitions, anger and attachment issues.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

The key to successful therapy is the fit between you and your therapist. It is critical that you feel comfortable with and, most of all, understood by your therapist. While it is difficult to know beforehand if you will be able to form good working relationship with your therapist, reading these profiles can help you find a therapist you connect with. This first step is an important part of the process.
