Individual, family, couples and group work within a solution-focused, brief psychotherapy format. I utilize solution-based talk therapy, EMDR, hypnotherapy, somatic work, and homework as needed.
I feel equally comfortable with men’s and women’s issues and relationships. I hold space for the safe exploration of all manner of human patterns.
Sustained healing is at the core of my work. A variety of approaches are available given each person's unique style of learning and level of need. A good diagnostic map and case history is also important in order to understand various patterns and achievable goals.

I maintain a large, quiet, spacious office that I trust you will find inviting, and not your traditionally clinical setting.
