About Myself
I have over 20 years of experience conducting psychotherapy.
I am originally from the Seattle area and have been practicing here since 1992.

Philosophy of Practice

        I believe in tailoring the therapy to meet each clients individual  needs. I help each client find the path in life that is right for that individual. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including cognitive and behavioral methods but primarily use psychodynamic therapy which helps the client gain self-insight. Being able to stand back from one’s self and gain perspective about one’s personality, choices and actions are important in helping an individual work through issues. I help the client explore what issues from the past or present may be contributing to depression or anxiety. I provide emotional support to help those healing from loss such as death of a loved one, loss of a relationship, loss of one’s health, loss of a job. I help couples rebuild and strengthen relationships through improved communication, insight and the ability to work together.
