My Approach to Helping

It's invigorating and satisfying to collaborate with people and see troubled relationships go from conflicted to loving; to see depression shift toward satisfaction and joy, or anxiety give way to confidence. Seeing the varied concerns people bring to therapy transformed through our mutual effort has been my motivation over the past 28 years as a therapist.

I want to offer you a safe, and non-judgmental relationship in which you can count on respect, confidentiality, a sense of humor and honest feedback; feedback that supports you in attaining your goals.

More Info About My Practice

My training is in Family Systems Therapy and Relational Recovery therapy approaches. I've added an eclectic skill set tuned to tackle a wide range of personal and relationship needs. Together we will engage your strengths and increase your options so you feel more effective and satisfied.

Challenging as it may be, getting a handle on thinking styles and/or emotional patterns that work against your best interest can bring you closer to meeting your goals.

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

Relationships that are hurtful, stuck or abusive

The aftermath of infidelity

A marriage or relationship where you repeat the same arguments with no resolution

When there is no time for us as a couple, or where sexual desire is mismatched causing conflict

Disagreement on parenting and discipline

Depression that saps your energy and joy

Anxiety that holds you back from living and working as you desire

Family or work problems that aren't improving

Anger that is destructive

A belief that you can never be good enough

The demands of care taking

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

We learn a lot about who we will become in the families we grow up in, the peer groups we travel with, and to some degree in our social media contacts. Each of these can have a strong impact for good or ill. While I don't spend a lot of time on the past, I do want to understand the many factors that have influenced you. To that end I draw a Genogram, a sort of family tree, that we can refer to as you make progress.
