My Approach

I provide psychotherapy for adults, couples, and parents.  My practice has developed out of a special concern for assisting individuals and their families in understanding their total psychological experience, including the significance of their unconscious emotional processes and physical experiences, which greatly affect psychological well being.

Individual and couple psychotherapy help individuals learn to use their internal and external resources to their fullest potential. The purpose of psychotherapy is to help support changes in an individual's thinking, feeling and behavior so that pain, depression and anxiety are reduced. Psychotherapy encourages and supports healthy emotional development through assisting individuals and couples learn to understand and utilize their intellectual and emotional capacities.

Parenting consultations help parents adjust and manage child rearing responsibilities and help relieve family relationship problems such as pregnancy and birth related mood disorders, mother/father infant bonding difficulties, and family crises and disruptions that can create separation conflict and distress.
