My approach to therapy focuses on relationships, including the formative ones from childhood, current relationship dilemmas, and one's relationship to him/herself.  I work with clients to identify the habits and patterns which contribute to chronic and current life issues, including anxiety, depression, and "stuckness," and to imagine new and more creative approaches to these problems.  I emphasize the importance of emotional awareness to the goal of therapeutic change.

Approximately half of my practice is devoted to couples and families, with whom I encourage attention to styles of communication and the cultivation of non-reactive listening.  I help couples recognize more clearly the traits they bring to a relationship, and the ways those traits can be modified, to both calm and enrich the relationship.
