Practice Description:
I am offering secure telehealth meetings until it is safe to meet in person, and indefinitely, if it makes sense in your situation.

Are you facing changes, challenges or ruts that you want to work through in safety and confidence? Troubled by work, school, relationships, or parenting? Fighting depression or anxiety? Ready for a new beginning?

For better and worse, our experience is shaped by expectations and habits that are maintained by loyalty to important relationships, and by cycles of confirming experience. They affect our relationships, happiness, and success.

Therapy can help. Hurtful expectations and habits can be retired, and new habits of relating to life and others can be implicitly learned, or chosen and implemented. In my practice, therapy is as diverse as my clients, following from their deepest and increasingly explicit goals, and their changing moods and preferences.

Growing out of a shy childhood and an early adult focus on physics, physiology and neuroscience, my own ongoing journey is one of growing inner safety for emotional presence and integration of thought and feeling, while letting go of youthful habits of “emotional survival.”

In over fifteen years as a therapist, I have worked with people facing challenges associated with growing up, parenting, generational differences, displacement, work communication and organization, career transitions, substances, sexual preference, ADHD, learning disorders, multiple stressors, grief, depression, anxiety, abuse, neglect, bizarre experiences and relationship issues. My clients often fear that their problems will be overwhelming. Paradoxically, even when experiences are frustrating, grim or frightening for clients, sharing them in therapy is typically relieving, enlivening and even joyful. Alternatives then become possible.
