CHANGE IS HARD!
It's hard for individuals.
It's hard for couples.
It's hard for families.
It's hard for organizations.
I have spent almost 40 years working with individuals, couples, families (however you define them) and organizations go through change processes. Along with the challenges, there are many possibilities for growth.
I offer time-limited psychotherapy, clinical supervision for therapists in training and consulting work for individuals and human service agencies.

MY PSYCHOTHERAPY PRACTICE
Do you feel that therapy could be helpful but you don't want to be in it forever? I've done a lot of long-term work as a therapist and it certainly has its place. But at this point in my career, I am focusing primarily on time-limited work. Most of my clients feel that they achieve their goals in less than ten sessions. Of course if they are making progress, we can evaluate going on for a longer period of time.
HOW I APPROACH MY WORK
After we talk on the phone for a bit to see if we are a good match, we'll schedule an appointment for an hour and 20 minutes for our first session. You can learn more about my policies and procedures and see my client intake form on this site. I'll ask you to fill out and bring all necessary forms to our first meeting so we can make maximum use of the time to focus on what brings you in to see me.
At that first appointment I'll ask you what you would like to see different at the completion of our work. It might be a decision about your job or about improving communication with your partner. I see myself as a facilitator of your change process. How I do this is by bringing my many years of experience and training from working with all kinds of people. Your work with me will be tailored to meet your specific situation. No one size fits all approach!
How can I help you in this process?
I can help you find solutions that work for you.
I can provide you with support and a "yes you can do this" attitude.
- I can bring in a fresh perspective.
Everything we do is based on establishing a safe, respectful relationship. Therapy is a partnership where you are responsible for your own success and I help facilitate that process.
I look forward to talking with you to see if I'm the right therapist for you.
