Personal Statement

My clients tell me they feel lighter and better beginning with the very first session. I balance warmth and empathy with a great deal of education, experience, and expertise. I focus on solutions and strengths, and help people to enrich their lives and relationships. Well-being, health, and happiness are enhanced as I blend a number of therapeutic modalities that work with the conscious and unconscious mind, including mindfulness, meaningfulness, and trance work. I develop a unique blend of approaches for each individual, I also bring a wealth of psychoeducation and knowledge to share and apply about state-of-the-art research in areas such as love, relationships, parenting, communication, happiness, and well-being.

Couples: Whether early in your relationship or deep into a long-term commitment, couples counseling is powerfully effective. In my experience as a psychotherapist, change happens rapidly and profoundly. This comes from my expertise in cutting-edge research about what works in couples counseling, my intuitive-empathic abilities to understand each unique journey, and my strength and skill to apply these with balance, care, and even fun.

Individuals: Uncover sources of depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, and other challenges. Make real and positive changes to live your life joyfully and meaningfully.
