My Approach

Collaboration between client and therapist is central to my approach. I will tailor our work together to meet your specific needs in light of your lived experience from childhood to adulthood, challenges and diagnosis, current issues, and long-term aspirations.

During psychotherapy with me, you will work to see your struggles in new ways and strive to make positive decisions from the strength which comes from within. I draw on over 30 years experience as a therapist to offer insights, wisdom and support as you develop greater self-esteem and more fulfilling relationships, lessened depression and reduced anxiety.

While I’m a deep listener, I am not a quiet therapist. I am often direct and challenging as well as empathetic. You may begin therapy because a situation in your life has become too problematic or, despite your best efforts, you feel caught in a repetitive, destructive or nonproductive pattern. You may be experiencing low self-esteem, family dilemmas, anxiety, panic attacks, depression or other life stressors.

In addition to seeing individual clients and couples, I work with other leading therapists to facilitate group therapy sessions. We focus on viable solutions and work to achieve goals as quickly as possible, while making lasting change in how you approach and cope with life and relationships.
