Sometimes, one size does not fit all.
You've decided to seek help and you’re entrusting a therapist with your most personal concerns. It is vitally important that the fit be right.
Hope and relief come quickly when you find a therapist you feel comfortable with, someone who "gets" you, and has the skills and experience you need.
With over twenty years of experience, I can help you move forward in your life. My approach to psychotherapy grows out of a deep conviction that there is an instinct towards growth and development in each of us. When that instinct is thwarted, people can become stuck and frustrated. You'll be encouraged to take another look at the story you tell about your life. Even if you were powerless in the past, it's possible to have some control in the present. You'll learn to respond thoughtfully -- rather than react self destructively -- to what life throws in your direction.
I'll help you be kind with yourself as you learn new tools and overcome even long entrenched patterns. And when you're faced with tragedy and loss, having a compassionate witness along with you can be enormously helpful.
