Practice Description: Plato said "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." Although he was right - we all struggle at times - it is not necessary for this to be a permanent state.

In my practice, I help people understand what is blocking their path and cultivate a greater connection with their inner source of wisdom; and in my couples work - a greater connection with each other. I use the power of our therapeutic relationship (attachment theory) as the bedrock for change. I also incorporate mindfulness, humanistic, experiential, and social constructionism orientations. This means I take a non-pathologizing approach to mental health, therapy and counseling. I work with you to bring forward your competencies, and help you move through blind spots and better manage difficult emotions and relationships.

I came to this work after a 20 year career in business, which lends me a real world sensibility and groundedness. My work with couples and individuals often results in greater satisfaction with life, better coping skills and improved relationships.For some, the result is significant change, both internal and external. Therapy can be a profound growth experience, one that springs from a healing relationship. Whether working with individuals or couples, this is my greatest wish in my work with you.

I look forward to hearing from you so that we can see if I am a good fitting collaborator for your journey. Best wishes on your search!
