Sometimes we may find it almost impossible to cope with the challenges in our relationships, our work, with our children, our families or even in our own bodies. Depression can overwhelm us, debilitating conflicts with our partners or our children may overshadow our sense of well being. More serious issues affecting our lives may also be present.

People who seek psychotherapy are usually in some sort of pain, confusion, or frustration. Is it a relationship issue? Depression or lack of motivation? Anxiousness just dealing with everyday life or problems at work? Or just being unhappy, unfulfilled, and tired? Whatever it is, there is a solution. I work with my clients in finding that solution and help in bringing a greater love, acceptance and sense of connection into their lives.

My work with my clients is as varied as the unique individuals that come to me for therapy. Although I am informed by a variety of conventional psychotherapy traditions, and practice them when appropriate, the fundamental core of my practice is seated in a person-centered  psychological perspective. This means I believe that every human being has access to happiness and fulfillment through their own individual selves and that life consists of not only the day to day business of living but includes as well a deep and profound relationship with the inner-self—the soul of the individual, the planet, and the universe itself.

Transpersonal psychology is not religious, and does not assume any belief system's rules. My approach is humanistic, meaning that I see each patient with unconditional personal regard and hold onto what I believe to be the ultimate truth for all of us—that we are essentially benevolent beings seeking love, as well as having a desire to give love.

After experiencing a profound tragedy in my family, I decided I wanted to devote the rest of my life to helping people cope with difficult issues in their own lives. I believe to be truly effective as a therapist you must have lived a varied and somewhat eventful life. I do believe I have a keen insight into the creative side of being human, which in my opinion is not only expressed in the arts but expressed in all aspects of a full and whole life. I also have experienced first hand great pain and suffering and have an understanding of that obvious aspect of being a complete human being. I have a passion for the discovery of soul in every day life, and also have a passion for helping others discover the same.

Life is filled with many challenges, many joyous experiences, as well as many heartbreaks. The key to a successful life, in my opinion, is to learn to appreciate it all through gratitude, empathy for others, care and compassion for ourselves, and an understanding and awareness of our complex, and sometimes very difficult, way of being human.

I have a PhD in Depth Psychotherapy, an MA in Consciousness Studies, am a certified Hypnotherapist. To learn more about me and my work please visit my website or email me to ask questions or book an appointment.
