Anger? Anxiety? Depression? Relationship issues?

My approach to therapy involves integrating complementary methodologies attuned to each person's needs and personality.  I combine traditional talk therapy with work on mindfulness & self-compassion; dreams, journal writing, "empty chair"; active imagination and guided imagery, as appropriate.

Some of my clients need a brief, focused period of therapy to develop skills to survive a temporary difficult period.  Others feel the need to reassess long-held beliefs, behaviors and relationships that they feel are inhibiting them in one way or another. These clients may need longer periods of therapy in order to change habitual patterns.  As your therapist, I am committed to providing the support, unconditional understanding and professional insights you will need to find your way back to a healthy self or to discover new, healthier parts of yourself for the first time.

                 I have helped people in the following areas:

      Relationships, marriage, divorce
      Depression, anxiety, stress reduction

      Life transitions, loss of meaning, loss of direction

      Retirement and aging 

      Mindfulness and spiritual growth

      Men's issues

      Immigration and cultural identity

      Sexual self-expression and intimacy

      Disability, long-term and terminal illness

      Compassionate care for the dying & Caregiver burnout

      Artist block and search for creative self-expression
