I see individuals and couples. One of my strengths as a therapist is working respectfully with men who would rather not be in therapy. I understand why many men are skeptical about therapy, or uncomfortable talking about feelings, and I do not get judgmental or impatient about this. Men who are concerned that in couple therapy they might be ganged up on and blamed will find that I don’t do this, to them or their partner. And of course I also enjoy working with women, and with men who are comfortable with therapy!
In individual therapy my primary approach is Internal Family Systems. With couples, my primary approach is Emotionally Focused Therapy. I help individual clients learn to handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively, be kind to themselves, live in the present, and take effective action according to what they care about.I help couples create a more secure attachment bond, increasing their experience of love and mutual support
I have a collaborative, non-judgmental style of doing therapy. I help people with relationship problems, stress management, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, anger problems, addictive and compulsive behaviors, procrastination and underachievement, and issues of identity, meaning and purpose.
