I create a safe, warm, caring atmosphere so that you can share your painful, feelings of hurt, anger, depression, bitterness, stress, sadness, helplessness, discouragement and hopelessness. You may also be experiencing guilt, fear, anxiety, shame or grief and serious relationship (marital, family, parent-child, partner, career/job) problems. I can help you shift from this state of emotional and mental distress to the experience of emotional and mental light. I can help you let go of the past and let go of “shoulding” on yourself, unrealistic expectations, perfectionism, self attack thoughts, loss and the sense you are ineffectual, unworthy, incompetent or deficient in some way or just no

I am a psychologist specializing in parent child relationships and attachment disorder in children and adults. No child is too young or too old to benefit from parent child therapy and all concerns are appropriate for an appointment and consultation. Successful early relationships create a foundation for trust, self-worth, and long term social emotional health and competence. I also work with adults experiencing adverse manifestations of childhood trauma and disordered relationships. I believe that intergenerational relational trauma and dysfunction can be curtailed through treatment and the experience of healthy relationships within the current generation.

I take a very holistic approach to psychology and psychotherapy. We truly are body, mind, and spirit, and I believe all three aspects must be honored. I generally take a problem-solving approach with my clients, first identifying the issues, and then looking at various options for resolution. I think psychotherapy should be a learning experience. This involves not only learning techniques to help you in a specific situation, but also, approaches to life that will serve you well long after therapy has concluded. And of course, you will most likely learn a lot about yourself in the process!

I am problem focused. I help you identify specific emotions you would like to reduce (depression, anger, anxiety or shame) or feelings you want to have more often (satisfaction, confidence, joy). We target behaviors you want to increase or decrease, and situations and people you would like to handle more effectively. I show you how your beliefs about the problems you face largely determine your emotional upset and your self-defeating behavior. Together we modify your beliefs. This allows you to effectively handle difficult situations, perform the way you would like and attain your personal goals. Your thinking about the past, present and future determines how you feel and function.

Coming to see a therapist is an important decision. Providing a safe and solid place for you to talk, helping you gain perspective and understanding and supporting you in dealing with what's happening has been the cornerstone of my approach for over 35 years. We work together to find solutions that work best for you. Sometime we just need to solve a problem, sometimes we need to find more functional ways of dealing with life situations, and sometimes a deep healing of emotional wounds is needed. Treatment is responsive to your problems and concerns, and helps you grow in strength and confidence. Psychotherapy is very individualistic, and how it proceeds is based upon our mutual understanding
