I have been a therapist and psychologist for over 15-years. The process of helping people work through their challenges and find meaning in life is something I am deeply committed to. My approach to therapy is a relational, collaborative approach. A significant amount of recent research supports that the relationship between the therapist and client is key to successful therapy. I seek to establish an empathetic, trusting relationship with clients, which provides the context for a deeper understanding of oneself and the difficulties being faced. this relational foundation, I work collaboratively with clients. There is no magic recipe that works for all clients. In each new therapy relationship, I work to adapt therapy to their particular needs and desired outcomes.
In addition to being a therapist, I am also a professor and author. I have been involved with training and supervising students throughout my career. I continue teaching through Saybrook University and regularly offer training workshops across the United States and in China. As an author, I have written 7 books as well as numerous journal articles and book chapters. Recently, I was recognized as a fellow of the American Psychological Association in recognition of contributions to the field of psychology.
