What is a Marriage and
Family Therapist?

We all need someone to talk to. 
You can talk to me.

I've been a therapist for over 20 years and have helped a lot of people save their relationships, save their jobs, and save their feelings of self-worth and optimism.

How does it work? 

We talk.   Communication is among the most basic of human necessities, the need to express, as clearly as possible, our feelings and fears, our desires and doubts, and to be listened to.  I listen.  I've helped hundreds of individuals and couples improve their communication skills and not only learn to talk more honestly and openly, but also to hear.

What makes you so smart? 

Good question.  Here's a subjective answer:  I'm completely objective.  I take my hard-earned education and my long years of practical experience and I apply what I've learned from the innumerable seminars I've attended and the cutting edge strategies I continue to pursue, and I share with you what I know.  I was once in your position, confused, frustrated, mad even and I went to therapy and it changed my life and now my job is to help others fight to change theirs.

How do I know you can help me? 

We'll talk.  That's what you're looking for, isn't it?  Someone to listen and help you sort out the mysteries of your life or your relationship.  Sometimes clients come in with specific hurdles they can't figure out how to get beyond and I help them learn the tools that will enable them to climb over the problem, or to build an internal GPS to navigate around it.  Sometimes it's an emotion a client needs to talk about or a life condition, a fear of abandonment, a longtime resentment or grievance.  We'll talk about anything and everything you feel comfortable exploring.  It's what I do, all day long, and I'm very good at it.  You may have tried other therapists and been unhappy with the results, but you haven't tried me.  I can help you. 

How do I know it's right for me?

You try it.  Therapy, with the right therapist, is a comforting and reassuring and empowering process.  It doesn't work for everyone, but for anyone who wants to function better and finesse his or her ability to coexist in a relationship or at work or with his or her family, there are invaluable tools a competent and caring therapist can provide.  I'm that therapist.  I love to see my clients grow and flourish.  Sometimes I feel sad to see them matriculate and move on with their vastly improved lives, but I'm deeply proud of the work we've done together.
