My Approach to Helping
Does your life feel like it shouldn't be this difficult? Is it hard to understand why you don't enjoy a sense of well being more of the time? Maybe anxiety or depression has gotten the best of you, even though you can't figure out why.
Therapy with me would look like a deepening conversation that would come to reverberate in your life in sometimes surprising ways. I bring to this conversation decades of experience, curiosity, intelligence, depth, kindness and empathy. I believe that the strongest tool we have to help you heal is the quality of our relationship
I have a strong sense of how race, culture, ethnicity and class can influence, and shape how we experience ourselves and others. I find that one's own culture is most strongly felt in multicultural relationships where suddenly what we thought was "normal" may be very different from our partner's perspective.
I enjoy helping individuals and couples heal from affairs. An affair does not necessarily mean the end of your marriage. It does mean that there will be intense emotions involved that may feel overwhelming. Even though affairs are not uncommon, they are still frequently traumatic experiences for everyone involved and deserve the utmost in terms of delicate and thoughtful attention. Many couples heal from affairs and in the process form a much deeper bond than ever before.
