I offer a down-to-earth style of therapy that is open and empathetic, as well as directive with teaching new skills and alternative ways of being. You will like my style if you're interested in learning about your brain and nervous system, learning and practicing mindfulness techniques, and if you're ready to make some important changes in your life-- no matter where you are in your healing process. I like to bring the body into therapy, so we aren't stuck in our cognitive (thinking) brain.

Psychologist, Ph.D., CMHIMP, CTACC
In searching for a therapist, you are taking the first step in what could be the most important journey of your life. It is definitely possible to make important, lasting improvements in your life and levels of happiness, satisfaction, and success. Therapy is often an effective way to attain these goals. With almost 40 years of experience working as a counselor and then a psychologist, I am well-qualified to help you identify what is standing in the way of increased life satisfaction, and help you effectively work towards your goals. People often get stuck in old patterns that make them unhappy, want to change them, but don't know how. I work together with my clients to understand how old patterns in thought, feeling, and behavior got established, and then explore how best to change those patterns. I enjoy doing longer term, deeper work with clients, to create significant, meaningful, and lasting change. I often employ a holistic approach, exploring personal history, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationship history and issues, as well as issues including medical history, self-care habits, and experiences of spirituality. I view the therapy relationship as a partnership, respecting the pace and timing that the client requires.
