Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I provide an environment of safety and acceptance, where new understanding and confidence can develop and flourish. Recognize that our feelings and previous experiences affect such issues as intimacy, the challenge of illness, life transitions, loss, and sense of purpose, my approach to psychotherapy integrates concepts of the mind and body. I work with individuals and couples to facilitate change toward increased contentment and vitality, and have particular expertise in helping clients cope with the experience of chronic or acute medical conditions.

Fear and pain can keep up from the fullness of life, while anger, resentment, loneliness, and jealousy can keep us from experiencing healthy relationships. I seek to create a space in which new meanings can emerge, and healing can take place.

My background in family medicine as a physician assistant/family nurse practitioner (PA/FNP since 1979), offers unique perspectives to my work. Because of my training and experience, I am particularly sensitive to the needs of clients who are dealing with issues of health and illness.
