Mental Health




I believe we all want to belong, be heard, be seen and be loved.  We are formed in relationships and we are hurt and harmed or helped and supported in relationship. Relationships are a wonderful resource for healthy change.  It is not uncommon for me to invite important people in your life into the therapy room.  This helps me get a sense of your family and support system so that your relationships improve.  Healthy relationships and attachments are the foundation of healthy human living.

My years as a psychotherapist have been most rewarding.  I have witnessed people choose life and complexity in the face of suffering. I have watched clients develop courage to challenge themselves to be who they want to be .  Parents have taught me the meaning of unconditional love. Couples have shown me the meaning of compassion and forgiveness.  Children have taught me the most -about meaning, truth, trust and emotion.
