Focused, heartfelt & supportive psychotherapy.

I support adults in their move toward HAPPINESS. I invite you to my peaceful, hilltop office. Together, we can explore and work through your feelings of loss/grief, non-acceptance, feeling less-than, life transitions, dissatisfaction, helplessness, and pain. I can help you with empowerment, insight, and moving beyond impeding obstacles. With empathy and sometimes humor, I will guide you through life's crises and challenges.   You can learn to stay mindfully in the present, an antidote to fear and helplessness. Life can always be better and we can remember to be thankful for the beauty and the good.  Offering caring empathy, I work with both individuals and couples on issues ranging from anxiety and depression to life transitions and trauma recovery.

Over my 30+ year career  I have learned and employed a variety of therapeutic techniques, including EMDR , shamanic journey , hypnosis, imagery, and traditional talk therapy. However, as each person is unique, I tailor my methods around what will work best for you.

I recommend that we work intensively (at least 2 times per week) for short, contracted periods such as 2 or 3 months. With this format we can build intensity and increase effectiveness. I do also provide therapy sessions on an individual basis.

After much intense, introspective work, we can choose to take a break for integration, negotiating the time period, and if needed, a restarting time. This method can be extremely empowering. It creates personal space to assimilate what we have accomplished, letting the positive changes be felt and integrated.

Welcome. I can help and guide you on your journey toward happiness and self fulfillment in your life. As we laugh and cry and search, you will emerge and be able to move on with your life in the directions that make sense to you, with the freedom of purpose and joy and satisfaction. Please visit my office and we can begin the process, the journey to happiness.

“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don't go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don't go back to sleep!”

― Rumi
