Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I employ an array of modalities in psychotherapy but rely primarily on the cognitive approach. Individuals gain insight into dysfunctional patterns and the irrational core beliefs that sustain them. I view my patients as whole human beings who possess within themselves everything they need to solve their problems. I work with adolescents, adults and seniors in individual therapy, as well as with couples, families and groups. I enjoy assisting clients with working through issues that have created depression, anxiety and stress in their lives. I like helping couples and families improve their relationships by building trust and improving communication skills. Life coaching helps individuals navigate a successful course from where they are now to where they want to be. I help them connect with the internal vision that aligns with their life's purpose. This vision can guide choices regarding career , education, relationships, financial goals, family, spiritual evolution, and service. As a meditation trainer and group leader, I add a spiritual dimension to my work. I facilitate weekly meditation groups. Members report significant positive change. They report that a grounded, peaceful center has been established within them that enables them to function in daily life with more ease and grace. "
