DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

For three decades, I have worked with individuals, couples and families focusing on the relationship to self and others, spiritual and emotional growth, life transitions, and mental health. This may involve both the working-through of longer term family-of-origin issues as well as practical issues such as parent/child/spouse communication, decision making and the relationship to change. Within a psychodynamic background and a relational analytic model of psychotherapeutic change, I have expertise in the areas listed below.
