Personal Statement

If you are feeling distressed and have not been able to find effective ways to feel better, I am happy to talk with you and see if I can help. I have worked with individuals, couples and families for over 25 years and can offer a safe, confidential and comfortable space for your healing to begin. Every person is unique so I listen to what is happening to you and around you so that you can find ways to understand yourself more clearly, and hopefully find new and better ways to cope with conflict and with life's transitions and tragedies. Our inner worlds sometimes reflect the chaos we see in our outer world. Stress, poor health, rigid habits, and difficult relationships can be handled in healthier ways much of the time. Feel free to contact me if you would like to see if I can help you in any way that I can.
