Philosophy

I take as a basic premise that you are more than a collection of symptoms or a problem to be fixed and believe that whatever your struggles may be, they deserve our full attention and thorough exploration with the goal of long-term sustainable growth and change. Self-knowledge is good medicine. Therapy takes courage but can help you attain a sustainable sense of well-being and a freer and more satisfying life. Read more

Areas of Expertise

Perhaps you are unhappy with yourself and the way life is unfolding. Or your career, relationships, or creative life are not what you want them to be. You may be feeling frustrated, unmotivated, anxious, lonely, or sad. Whatever the specific issues or symptoms may be, together we can look at what’s going on and what’s getting in your way and help you more successfully cope with life’s challenges, more fully understand yourself and your patterns, and more happily pursue and engage with your work, your social life, and your passions.
