Do you feel stuck, upset, frustrated, scared or confused? A troubling combination of these feelings? People often call me when stresses in their lives have increased, they're having difficulty coping or are experiencing uncomfortable levels of anxiety, depression or confusion in relationships, disappointment in self or others, work difficulties, or problems adjusting to loss and other life changes. In the context of a respectful, warm and trusting therapeutic alliance, I work with individuals and couples to empower them to build skills necessary to explore, fully experience and productively weather the emotional storms essential to a worthwhile and creative life.

Clients benefit from my psychodynamic training to become aware of how the past might influence the present. My extensive experience in Human Resources, mediation and meditation can help you to increase self-compassion, appreciate differences and focus on achieving positive change in the present with confidence.

Therapy is an opportunity to more easily bear difficult parts of reality, develop options for change and become acquainted with parts of yourself and others worth knowing. We can work together with curiosity and empathy to help you have the life you desire. Let's talk!
