Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a psychotherapist my areas of emphasis are loss issues, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. I work collaboratively with individuals and couples to establish a strong client/therapist rapport. My work with clients is enhanced by my life experience which includes many losses. Depression and anxiety generally go hand in hand with the death of a loved one and/or divorce. Loss issues also include the loss of a childhood through abuse, neglect and abandonment which can affect the quality of adult relationships or the ability to navigate them successfully. Losses are varied, complex, painful and a part of the human condition. This is where I am at my best with clients. I help them create new lives and develop a deeper sense of who they are.

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