I believe that, at its heart, the therapeutic endeavor is a human one, one that we will create and travel together.

About My Clients

Are you longing for more self-acceptance and closeness with others? Feeling overwhelmed by heartache or sorrow? Desiring more confidence in yourself and your dreams? Trying to cope with loss, grief, anxiety or depression? Yearning for support but unsure of where to turn? Wishing someone would truly listen? If so, psychotherapy can help.

My Background and Approach

Over the course of the past two decades, I have assisted many individuals, couples and families. In the process, they have talked with me about their lives and about their longing for more self-acceptance and closeness with others, a stronger sense of their own inherent goodness, the freedom to express themselves more fully or relief from sorrows or despair that had darkened their lives unbearably. I've listened attentively, as they've shared stories of their often brave efforts to navigate a chapter of their lives, for which they have had no modeling or mentoring, to wrestle with conflicts that have wreaked havoc in their lives, to courageously acknowledge the harsh realities of the pain, suffering or fear they have experienced, and pursue changes in their lives, even without hope that such changes were possible. If you are at an important crossroads in your life, and need an ally, a guide or simply a witness, please consider calling. I'd be delighted to help.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that the ways we were loved and cared for as children influence our lives as adults. I believe we are partners with our fate. I believe that sometimes the most profound changes occur when we accept ourselves as we are. I believe that perfection is an illusion and that we all carry burdens, including those inherited across generations from others. I believe that compassion has not only the power to soothe, but transform. I believe in the capacities of curiosity and imagination to expand both our world and perspective of ourselves and others. I believe we are all teachers and learners. I believe that loving is both a journey and a destination. I believe in the durability of the heart. I believe in the tenacity of the human spirit to survive. I believe the "body never lies." I believe that we are bound more by our similarities than our differences. I believe even the most entrenched conflicts can be mediated. I believe that a meaningful life is the greatest richness of all.
