Welcome to my practice. I have provided professional counseling services since 1985, specifically focusing on individual psychotherapy and family systems therapy since 1993. In 2001 I opened a private practice in a home-based office in order to offer the ultimate in a private, confidential setting for my patients, knowing how difficult it can be to seek therapy for ones private matters and be forced to sit in a cold, clinical waiting room with a bunch of strangers. My office has a private entrance through a lovely garden and is fully segregated from my home quarters. I have no waiting room. When you arrive you will enter the office directly, no waiting, and your coming and going is timed so you do not encounter another patient.
My approach to therapy is grounded in the Contextual School of Therapy as founded by Ivan Boszormenyi-Nagy and is enhanced by 60+ hours of continuing education every two years in the most cutting edge research and practice innovations. My guiding principle as a therapist is to listen respectfully, always striving to understand my patients without pre-judgment and with unconditional positive regard (as articulated by Carl Rogers). I do not posture myself as an expert on your life. You are the expert there. And I learn from your expertise at finding the creative ways you meet life’s challenges. My expertise is in active listening, paying close attention to your positive qualities, your inherent competence, and your capacity for resilience and change. I try to help you appreciate the courage it takes to enter therapy and to utilize that courage to identify and grapple with your blind spots. Together we explore options for change towards a life of enhanced meaning, balance, and fulfillment.
