I offer an open, conversational, and professionally directed approach to individuals and couples seeking therapy for issues including career & work difficulties, depression, anxiety, family issues, as well as sexuality, broken relationships, support for lifestyle changes for clients with medical issues such as diabetes, heart disease and life transitions. The therapeutic relationship is useful to help you learn new ways of understanding yourself and others & forging relationship changes. Throughout our conversation, we will work to understand areas of conflict and difficulty in new ways allowing you to make clearer decisions with more confidence and grace. As a versatile clinician, I enjoy working with all people.
Whether it is Individual or relationship therapy, coaching services, addressing couple or family issues, Parenting consultation, or working with you on your own concerns and examining old beliefs and habits that have been holding you back ~ I welcome patients' stories and enjoy helping them find their own courage, core strengths and desires. As a psychotherapist doing therapy in Ann Arbor some 25+ years, it still is a privilege to witness a patient's process as they discover how to express their truest selves. I love this work and consider it a great gift to be invited to witness your work and to assist you in your process to create more health and happiness in your life.
