Welcome. These pages provide an overview of the psychotherapy and helping services that I provide to private clients. All my work is rooted in the belief that we all have the innate drive urging us toward our health and maturation. Because of difficult experiences from our past and present, I believe that this drive becomes thwarted and we become stuck in our problems, negativity, and symptoms. My work is about helping individuals confront these obstructions, navigate successfully through them, and realign with their natural maturational processes. I am slow to view problematic behaviors and beliefs as pathological and, instead, help individuals identify the utility of these “problems” so that they can adopt more healthy and useful behaviors and beliefs.

I have a wide range of both experience and training in psychotherapy styles and techniques, so if there is something that you are wanting and you do not see it on this website, please feel free to contact me personally by email or telephone at:
