Profile
“My experience as a lawyer provides an additional dimension to my work as a therapist.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
In addition to being a therapist, I am also an attorney with over 25 years in legal practice. My experience as a lawyer provides an additional dimension to my work as a therapist. I am comfortable working with intimate relational dynamics to achieve resolution and change. The ability to focus on your strengths and your concerns is the key to promoting growth.
What should someone know about working with you?
My session style is conversational; I believe in starting with a shared narrative, a dialogue. This is where connection, trust, and rapport begin to build. Once established, authenticity, vulnerability, and the client’s reality are allowed to surface, thereby making space for deeper issues to flow within the session. This is my style.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My father used to tell me, “You have to take EVERYTHING that happens to you in life and LEARN from it…your best lessons will come from your most difficult times and ‘failures.'” I believe this to be true. Life is a journey of personal growth, and there are always lessons to be learned from our experiences. This tenet is at the core of my work as a therapist: I work with the client based on their own experiences and assist in finding whatever will allow the client to tap into their greatest growth and potential.
What are some of the most common themes you see, on a daily basis, in your practice?
Intimacy and sex are two of the most common themes brought up in individual and couples therapy, yet everyone has a different view of what these entail. For some people, the two are intimately intertwined. For others, they are separate and distinct concepts, having little connection to one another. Either way, these are very private matters for most people. Your session should be a place where you and your loved one can address these concerns in an honest, respectful, and nurturing way, free from judgment or shame.
