There are from time to time mornings
when especially the world seems to begin anew. . .
Mornings of creation, I call them.
Mornings when men are new-born,
men who have the seeds of life in them.

~ Henry David Thoreau, Journal                                                       


 
 
LIFE CAN BE TOUGH !
Sometimes you may feel that you’re getting more than your fair share of life’s difficulties. . .


     • You are unhappy in your marriage and wonder if it has a
        future

     • Your preschooler is anxious following your recent separation
       and you can’t seem to be able to reassure him

     • You are trying to balance the demands of your professional
       life with your family life and both are coming up short



I CAN HELP YOU.
I can help you learn more effective ways of managing problems in your family or your couple. . . help you develop new ways of communicating, of expressing what you need and listening to what others need. . . help you increase your self-understanding and self-confidence in your relationships.

I firmly believe that “where there is life, there is hope”—that you can change and that you can overcome many of the difficulties which are holding you back.

Jung believed the three stages of therapy to be Confession, Education and Transformation. We will begin with whichever of these three stages is most appropriate for you.

I will meet you where you’re at and help you move—from vulnerability . . . to understanding . . . to action.

My approach is respectful and warm, and I do more than "just listen" although my starting point is always listening and striving to grasp your reality.

My goal is first to help you understand what you are up against . . . and then to help you develop the courage and the strategies necessary for change.

I believe that the work we do together will serve as a catalyst towards change.

And the very first thing you need to acquire is the hope that change is possible.
