My Approach to Therapy

When beginning therapy one should understand that the first session is utilized by both clinician and client to determine if the match is a good one. Also, new clients should not worry about sharing enough details. All that is required will come out naturally. Whether you are on welfare, drive a truck, or are a lawyer; in therapy everyone is the same. We all find ourselves, at times, facing problems we just can't resolve. Often the key lies in the subconscious mind. The structured nature of authentic psychotherapy leads to awareness and the opportunity to change one's life.

My earlier career focused on work with troubled youth and their families. I frequently receive calls from grownups I once treated as teenagers. My current focus now is on couples, and relationship therapy. I help couples in crisis, and provide effective techniques for resolving conflict. Conflict can be forged into intimacy!
