Welcome to My Practice

My specialty is providing counseling support to men, women, and couples who are seeking a richer, fuller life. My clients are of all types of personalities, of many ethnic backgrounds, straight and gay, religious and non-religious. While rich in their diversity, they share a willingness to risk new ways of thinking, relating, and living—all qualities for successful therapy.

If we find ourselves stuck in patterns that run contrary to our deeper desires and aspirations, it’s not because we want to be miserable or are in some way a “bad” person. We simply lack the emotional support to find our way out. Therapy provides a way out. The latest in brain research affirms what many therapists have known for some time—that empathic connection does in fact create change, as it literally rewires the brain in ways that stimulate new centers of initiative, confidence, and calm.

It is my privilege to provide the guidance for our work together. I bring the education, training and experience for the task. I invite you to browse my website to learn more about me and my practice.

I’m glad you found me.
