Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am an empathetic listener, but more importantly, I am very interactive with lots of questions and feedback. I create a safe environment in which you can do your personal work. Therapy is not only about the one hour you are in my office, but about what you learn and how you apply it in your daily living after you leave my office. Plan to do homework. I am all about change and moving forward. I don’t want you to be in therapy forever rehashing the past. I will help you identify problem areas and help you to see new options and solutions to whatever problems you may be having. I have a 12 step orientation and have been in recovery for 26 years. Spiritual growth is an important part of my path.

My area of special emphasis is helping people improve their important relationships, and working with my clients to decrease and stop depression.

Whether it's difficulty with a partner or spouse, teens or parents, friends or co-workers, a troubled relationship is painful.
