Working Together In Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a collaborative partnership. We work together to help you better understand your motivation and behavior in order to help you take better care of yourself, meet your personal goals, and feel more in charge of your life. If you're honest, open and willing to explore, we can help you learn from your mistakes instead of beating yourself up and help you develop more effective coping strategies. We develop an approach together that fits you and draws on my background in relationship and systems work, coaching and organizational consulting, psychodynamic therapy, humanistic psychology, and cognitive and behavioral work.

I believe that clients benefit from active guidance and clear and direct responses to their concerns. I answer questions in a direct and straightforward manner, actively help clients understand how they developed their beliefs and coping styles, and explain my rationale for interventions and suggestions.

Over 25 years of private practice experience has taught me to adapt the therapy to the client. While I have a general practice, I specialize in the challenges and crises of mid-life, men's issues, couples work, and adventure psychology.
