Practice Description: I am committed to offering psychotherapy of the highest possible integrity. We know that the bond between client and therapist is the most important single factor in successful therapy. For this reason, I make every effort to ensure that you feel not only safe and supported in our therapeutic relationship but, more, that you feel free to explore even the most challenging parts of your own experience with me. This freedom to range into all territories of the psyche yields, I believe, the greatest possible healing.

Couple Therapy

A growing body of research shows that your relationship with your significant other matters more than we ever knew. A strong bond predicts greater happiness, better health, and longer life for you and your partner. And when this bond falters, for any number of reasons, research shows that it can be repaired.

I specialize in working with couples in distress to repair their bond, restore a loving connection, and unlock a lifelong capacity for greater intimacy. I focus on the emotional meanings that drive the patterns of your relationship, using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). EFT may be the most researched and validated approach to couple therapy yet devised.

Individual Therapy

As part of my practice, I work in depth with individual adults, usually on a weekly basis. Using a person-centered approach informed by Emotion-Focused Therapy, I work with a wide spectrum of issues, including anxiety, depression, bereavement, adjustment to events or life transitions, relationship issues, problems at work, and so on.
