My practice is currently full; I’m not able to take new clients. Former
clients are welcome to contact me if they wish to resume therapy or to
meet for a few ‘tune up’ sessions.

Working as a psychotherapist for 30 years, I have a wealth of experience and
learning to offer to clients who are 18 years and older and are experiencing
difficult life transitions, academic or work problems, relationship difficulties,
grief, depression, anxiety, or panic. I also help people who are coping with chronic
or life threatening illness - either their own or of loved ones.

In the context of individual talk therapy, clients have the option to include
mindfulness and meditation training, expressive art therapy,  and stress reduction
training. You can learn mindfulness and meditation skills during individual sessions
and in one of the classes I teach. (See sidebar for details about classes.) If you already
have a meditation practice, we can build on it to enhance the benefits of therapy for

My primary orientation is Person-Centered underpinned with psychodynamic
understanding. I have found that all approaches are most effective when paired

underlying assumption is that therapy generally works best when it combines a
focus on the here-and-now with exploration of past sources of patterns, self-
limiting beliefs, and behaviors.

“Meditation practice provides (a) filter by training us
to…..consider our actions, to ‘check in’ and directly
experience how we feel physical and emotionally
before acting on it. This teaches us to see the larger
world and our place in it more clearly, and to
experience what we are feeling with some degree of
awareness.” Seth Greenland
