My Approach to Helping

People have an inherent conflict between the desire to be autonomous, self-supporting individuals, while at the same time in meaningful relationships with others. Therefore, we develop all kinds of creative but sometimes unhealthy and damaging ways of managing these two opposing desires. This conflict often causes dissatisfaction or even crisis. My approach to therapy is to help you understand and manage this conflict so you can flourish as an individual while in healthy relationships with others.

I have created an office environment that is comfortable, tranquil, and inviting for's like a yoga studio for your heart and mind. A place where you can stretch yourself and strengthen your internal resources.

It is also important to me to create and be a part of a collaborative practice that includes therapists who specialize in a variety of therapeutic concerns. Insights Collaborative Therapy Group is just that. We work together to help individuals and families move through all of lives challenges and transitions; from childhood to elder care. We meet together regularly for support, learning, and consultation to ensure we are providing the best care for our clients.

More Info About My Practice

Many couples come to me with a desire to end their marriage and transition to co-parenting in a healthy meaningful way for their family. Divorce Mediation encourages direct communication between the parties and helps people decide for themselves the best settlement. It allows for the expression of emotions, often defuses anger, explores creative means of solving problems, and promotes cooperation between people. Mediation is especially beneficial in situations where there will be an ongoing relationship because the process helps preserve the strengths of a relationship. It often helps people accept the consequences of their own decisions and develops a model for resolution of future conflicts. Mediation gives people a relatively quick, inexpensive way to work out their differences while addressing everyone’s needs and interests. Decisions reached in mediation are created by the people who are in conflict, not by the mediator or a judge.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Over the years I have found that many people are unsure about the process of psychotherapy and how it works. So, I wrote a book on the subject, "Ready To Talk, A Companion Guide to Psychotherapy". In an easy-to-read format, Ready to Talk walks you through the answers to these questions and many more. You? You'll find helpful ways of looking at old behavior patterns, case examples of other people experiencing similar challenges and written exercises to help you better understand how therapy can bring you closer to your basic, authentic self.
