Personal Statement

I am a solution focused therapist with 30 years of experience. My therapy style is cognitive, interactive, compassionate, and, if need be, challenging. I believe effective therapy should produce change, not just insight. I will listen to you deeply, help conceptualize the problems, patterns, and dynamics which are causing you trouble, and give you feedback. Together, we will develop a strategy for more effective functioning and a better quality of life. I have a general practice, but specialize in addictions, depression, anxiety, and couples therapy.

If you will accept as I do that the most important relationship you have is with yourself, you will be much more reluctant to chip away at your own positive regard in order to be liked. Why is the relationship with self the most important one you have? The reason is that it is the relationship from which all others stem.

If I don’t think much of myself, how can I believe others think highly of me? If I am unable to treat myself compassionately, why would I expect compassion from others? If I don’t protect myself from mistreatment, why am I surprised when I am mistreated? If I can’t take responsibility for my own behavior, then what makes me think I have the right to expect that from others?

My Approach to Helping I truly believe that healing comes from exploring and working through what “comes up” in your mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
