My Approach to Helping

My philosophy is that with crisis comes opportunity! When most people come to therapy they KNOW they need CHANGE. But, constructive, life fulfilling change is daunting and anxiety-inducing. Most people really do want rich, fulfilling lives, but often are held back by feelings of worthlessness, fear of success, fear of failure. I am an engaged and responsive therapist who helps clients uncover paralyzing core beliefs and fears. Using an integrative, collaborative approach, we first identify patterns that keep folks resistant and stuck. Together, we cobble together strategies that first begin with insight, then behavioral change and, ultimately, emotional reconciliation. In the end, my clients FEEL better about their life/relationships/careers because they have stopped reacting negatively, have begun to think positively and to act mindfully and responsibly.

More Info About My Practice

It is my belief that confidentiality is central to a therapeutic relationship and that the duration of treatment is best determined by the client's needs and wants. For these reasons and more, I do not accept insurance. However, I offer a sliding scale and affordable rates.

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

Since we are relational beings, I help people have rich, ongoing relationships with their family of origin and their family of choice. Family is the relationship laboratory that becomes -- for better or worse -- the reference point for all future relationships; this is why I specialize in family healing. Healing past relationship wounds allow us to not hold our present-day loved ones accountable for past hurts or transgressions. Helping folks reconcile the unmet needs of their childhood is an important step in breaking free of the stranglehold of their past. Through this process of resolution, our present day relationships are less defensive, more authentic and grounded in the reality of the moment.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

I LOVE the emotional connection and shared experience that emerges when two people are in 'contact' with one another in a caring, safe and boundaried way. Through this connection, a corrective emotional experience occurs that brings the patient resolution, so that the individual can move forward and actualize his/her hopes and dreams.
