I provide psychotherapy to individuals and couples. We can focus on specific concerns and work together on a short-term basis to help you resolve the issues that brought you to seek help. We can also decide to work together over a longer period of time to help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your relationships and the way in which you respond to the stresses, demands and challenges you experience in your life. I find the model of the onion to be helpful. There are times in our lives when we want to work on the outer layers, resolving current demands we are facing in our lives. We might also choose to explore deeper levels of our sense of self, how we have created relationships throughout our lives and the patterns we have developed that might be getting in the way of deeper satisfaction and joy.
Areas of special interest and expertise include:
- Sadness, loss and depression
- Fear and anxiety
I work with individuals and couples from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds as well as sexual orientations.
