As a caring and experienced psychotherapist, I listen carefully and respond honestly. Often, parental neglect or abuse leaves us with low self esteem, unresolved hurts and insufficient coping skills. Self criticism leads to painful and negative beliefs that lead to depression and anxiety. We begin with the formative events in your life and your current issues. By drawing on family systems and psychodynamic principles, I can interweave the latest interpersonal, cognitive and behavioral techniques with an informal and collaborative therapeutic approaches that will lead you toward greater self understanding and positive steps that enable you to change.
Individuals who have placed themselves second to their spouses and families thrive when they are encouraged to know and care for themselves, discover their gifts and develop fruitful lives. Men and women whose careers have had primacy value the new experience of understanding and listening to themselves.
In 40 years, I've companioned every kind of psychological issue and concern and seen enormous growth and change in my clients.
