My Approach to Helping

We all have inner voices which often contradict each other, and pull us in different directions. And we often don't understand the intent of those voices, which is always to help us, and sometimes is a part that carries an injury from the past which needs healing.I help people have compassion for those wounded parts, and to heal them. We also strengthen inner resources in many creative ways.
In our close relationships, those defensive and hurt parts can get in the way. In couples therapy, I help the couple feel safe enough to express their needs and longing, and be received with understanding.Using a highly effective method of couples therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, people often are able to find their way back to connection, safety and joy with their partner.

I also love helping people deepen their family connections and strengths, whether it's a child's problem or family crisis that brings them in for consultation.

More Info About My Practice

While I don't participate on insurance panels, I do take credit cards to help with the "float" before insurance reimburses clients. My regular fee is $150 for 50 minutes. My educational groups are often highly discounted, to allow current clients to enjoy both individual and psycho-education.

I also offer Heartmath biofeedback training to all interested clients, which increases people's emotional resilience.

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

Couples, in transitional phases, and with parenting.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Sometimes people come to me after an unhelpful therapy experience. They may have felt judged, or that their therapist was analytical and distant, or just frustrated that real change didn't happen for them. To begin to trust me, people need to process what happened, and experience being deeply listened to, before they can go deeper. With the skills and training I've accumulated with 30 years experience, I am flexible and adaptable in my approaches, with the continuing thread of belief in each person's ability to heal and grow, and a deep respect for the pain people carry.
