I believe that if we turn within, we can find the resources to deal with any problem and we can create a life of satisfaction, love and joy. My ideal client wants a safe, caring relationship in which to open up, share and be authentic. The journey to being oneself is very exciting and for me; therapy is about accepting oneself, expressing oneself and being honest. Doing this inner work with a guide naturally opens doors to connection and resolution of relationship and family problems and creates enthusiasm and a sense of satisfaction and purpose in one's life.
I am a Yale/University of Michigan trained psychologist. I work with clients and teach in two graduate psychology programs. I emphasize learning to tolerate and express feelings openly and constructively and I try to be a real and trustable, open and honest, caring and accepting companion on this journey.
I come from the humanistic tradition of psychologists who believe that a therapist is only as skilled as he/she is evolved or self-actualized him or herself. For me therapy is a subjective, authentic relationship. I enjoy getting to know my clients and sharing what I have learned on my journey to help them.
