Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with individuals and couples in an interactive, direct, empathic way, using warmth and humor to develop a strong connection that is the foundation of our work. Together we work towards knowing your needs and desires more deeply while developing a compassionate and accepting attitude towards yourself. We discover the connections between your past history and beliefs and the present. With this greater self-awareness comes the ability to change self- limiting patterns and move beyond painful experiences, the capacity for closer and more fulfilling relationships, the opportunity for more satisfying work, creative and spiritual experiences, and the capacity for more joy and aliveness. With Jewish roots and Buddhist leanings, I also enjoy working with people who are interested in a spiritual perspective on their lives. I love my work and put my heart, knowledge and over 30 years of experience into doing it well.
