Maybe things aren’t working out the way you want or expected them to, and you don’t know how to make changes that will stick. What’s getting in the way? Are you having difficulty communicating and navigating intimacy issues with your partner; tolerating intense feelings or moods; reconciling a traumatic history? Whether it be in our loves or careers, parenting, facing illness and loss, or just watching ourselves and our partners age — all too often, in the midst of this complex and busy life, we find ourselves wondering: what do I do now? How do I best respond?
In my psychotherapy practice with individuals, couples and families, my main goal is to help people find ways to reduce suffering and live more peaceful and meaningful lives. I maintain a safe, confidential and creative space with my clients. My approach is interpersonal and psychodynamic, informed by my training in Couples and Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and contemplative practices. I believe therapy is most effective when it is collaborative, actively engaging, and draws from one’s history, relationships, everyday life, and the here and now in the counseling office.
Working together, we will locate and get acquainted with concerns in your life, relationships and families. Then, with mutual inquiry, problem-solving and skill building, drawing on your innate strengths and resiliency, you will learn to face and respond to these challenges in healthier, more fulfilling ways.
