Are you feeling depressed, anxious, or just feel that life is not all you had hoped? Are your relationships unfulfilling? Having difficulty letting go of past hurts? Using sex or the internet to avoid others or painful emotions? Does it seem impossible to "get through" to your adolescent son or daughter, or even your spouse? Maybe it is time for a change. I am a warm, compassionate, and patient professional with over twelve years of experience as a therapist, professor, and supervisor who takes a holistic approach to helping clients understand and overcome their concerns. From the beginning of therapy, I will work with you to develop a relationship that feels authentic and safe so that your concerns, emotional wounds, and disappointments as well as joys, pleasures, and surprises can be meaningfully explored. Within the context of this relationship, we will work together to develop a fresh understanding of your internal world and your relationships with others. Though this process of insight is generally very helpful, I also make use of action-oriented strategies to help you make changes and learn new skills in order to meet your goals.
