My Approach to Helping
Are you struggling with career, relationships, or creative life? Unhappy with the way your life is unfolding? Anxious? Unmotivated? Sad? Together we can help you understand what's going on and what might be getting in your way. In addition to patience, empathy, humor, reliability, and both personal and intellectual curiosity, I bring to my work the training and expertise to work with both individuals and couples around a wide-range of concerns. Areas of special interest include interpersonal conflict, loneliness, identity crises, creative blocks, infertility, eating/body image issues, LGBTQ concerns, habitual procrastination, self-esteem, sexual difficulties, and the particular dilemmas of artists and academics.
My approach is individualized and interactive with a focus on long-term sustainable change. I take as a basic premise that you are more than a collection of symptoms or a problem to be fixed and believe that all you bring to the table deserves our full attention and exploration.
Self-knowledge is good medicine. Therapy takes courage but can help you, like nothing else can, attain a sustainable sense of well-being and a freer and more satisfying life. (For more information about my training, my philosophy, and how I can help, please visit my website.)
