I view purpose, significance, fulfillment, self-acceptance and self-responsibility as foundations for leading a meaningful life; and I believe that a safe, supportive environment promotes the development of these characteristics. The healing power of an empathetic, caring, authentic relationship, including acceptance, trust, and respect, helps develop an attitude of love, openness, and self-acceptance, which promotes growth-seeking efforts, and serves as a prerequisite for deepening relationships with others. My work is grounded in a commitment to respecting individual differences, helping people access and honor their moment-to-moment experiencing, and empowering them to follow their truth. On my path, psychotherapy has become one of the most fascinating journeys of my life. It has made a profound impact on me and has contributed to my life in immense ways and it is my hope to be able to give others this meaningful experience while joining them on their journey.
