Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with a diverse clientele in terms of age, culture, orientation, and issues. I think that people generally have the answers to their problems within themselves and I offer a strength-based approach and a safe place to assist my clients in finding these solutions.

I provide a genuine, accepting, non-judgmental, supportive environment to assist my clients in understanding the source of their suffering and in developing skills of personal success and satisfaction.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship—the connection/rapport between client and therapist¬¬—is the foundation of successful psychotherapy and personal growth. I use an idiosyncratic style; that is, I see each individual client as unique and use that uniqueness to inform the course of therapy.

Central to my practice is mindfulness, which combined with behavioral and humanistic-existential models, contributes to a client’s ability to gain clarity regarding problems, let go of old behaviors, and take a new direction.

I am in private practice, delivering telemedicine via Skype and FaceTime or by phone. My area of special emphasis is helping people improve their important relationships, and working with my clients to decrease and stop depression. If you are reading this, chances are one or more of your important relationshps are not working very well. Whether it's difficulty with a partner or spouse, teens or parents, friends or co-workers, a troubled relationship is painful.
