We can work together to help you find love, restore trust in a current relationship, or heal the wounds that are keeping you stuck. You can overcome love-addiction or love-avoidance patterns. Do you find yourself arguing in circles, or getting more and more distant from a partner? You can learn to communicate well, regain trust and respect.
In work, do you struggle with self-doubt and anxiety, perfectionism? I can help there too. Therapy gives you a place to feel and say what is true for you.
Are you a creative? Artists are often more sensitive than average, and therapy can be very helpful in a world which is typically not sensitive enough.
You can read more about these subjects on my blog, which is found on my website.
To learn more about the process of therapy itself please read my book, SOMEONE TO TALK TO; Understanding How Therapy Heals

More Info About My Practice

I work with individuals and couples, and specialize in the areas of relationships, addictions recovery, the arts, and business. I have over 25 years of experience in my practice.

As a writer and photographer, I am attuned to the needs of creative personalities as well as to the high-intensity world of business, where very specific problems of self-esteem, competition and approval are common.
I have experience with all phases of addictions-recovery, focusing especially on the hidden addictions of love and work.
