Counseling to help you manage the demands of adult life

After many decades of counseling individuals, families, and groups, I have come to appreciate the power of the healing principle in all of us. Every one has the capacity to grow, heal, and stabilize. A seasoned, skillful therapist guides and empowers the patient's own innate strength and healing capacities.

Counseling or psychotherapy can be helpful to people, whether they are facing the very ordinary but demanding problems of adult life or the extraordinary difficulties of dealing with catastrophic loss, grief, illness and trauma. My approach might best be described as a "relationship based" approach. Where this is appropriate, I integrate the wisdom of mindfulness.

For some individuals another tool, known as EMDR has been very successful in resolving "stuck" places within.
