Practice Description:
Due to Covid-19, and to protect patient safety, I currently only offer video-therapy. I use a secure platform which is Hipaa compliant, and approved for use by psychotherapists.

Free initial phone consultation:

Figuring out whether you are ready for therapy, or whether a therapist is a good match for you can be hard, so I will give you a free initial phone consultation of up to 30 minutes.

My approach:

For over thirty years I have been helping people to find their way through hard times and feelings, so that they can have warmer, richer lives with more satisfying relationships.

My manner is warm, thoughtful, and down-to-earth. My approach is collaborative, flexible, and straightforward. You may need time to feel safe, and want questions answered. I'm comfortable letting you know what I think, and discussing things with you. I'm equally comfortable sitting quietly while you feel your way.

Kinds of things you may want help with:

You may be feeling hopeless, angry confused, overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed; perhaps you are going through major life-changes such as loss, new beginnings, relationship difficulties, or migration. As we sift through things together, you can feel better generally, and better able to negotiate relationships and situations in your life; you can also develop your abilities to notice and avoid old pitfalls.

Perhaps you are stuck creatively, or simply want to live more soulfully. I have helped many people develop in these ways.

My specialties, briefly:

I specialize in meeting with people who struggle to feel authentic, or to open up and trust others; who may be very successful in the world, but feel unsatisfied, can't take pleasure in that success; or feel lonely, afraid, and helpless. I'm comfortable with people of diverse cultures and sexualities.

Throughout my career, I've specialized in helping people who've suffered trauma and abuse.
