DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

I work with individual adults and couples to help my patients to discover their most
authentic self and bring that reality more fully into the world.
I provide a therapy experience that is safe, supportive, and collaborative; one that
facilitates exploration of the experiences that have shaped your life while helping you
to open to a freer sense of yourself and a more skillful way of relating to others.
My treatment approach is effective for depression, anxiety, life changes, relationship
and social difficulties, grief and loss, as well as chemical behavioral addictions.
As a lawyer of 17 years, I also have a sub-specialty working with lawyers on issues such
as stress, burnout, and depression.
