Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My approach uses a blend of psychodynamic and eastern methods that emphasize wholeness and the building of resilience. The concept of the self is an important link between East and West. I believe that the self inherently moves towards health and the approaches of the West serve as the home base from which we push towards the fruitfulness of the East.

I offer a wide range of psychotherapeutic services, from couples counseling to individual therapy geared toward a specific issue. My goal is to help guide you to a place where life’s challenges are more manageable. Together, we can work toward your goal, whether it is to feel less overwhelmed by a problem, or to find strength in and existing relationship…

I specialize in helping people with traumatic backgrounds and chaotic lives to re-establish or possibly establish for the first time a sense of peace and safety.
