Welcome to Shift in Perspective!

Stuck? Bored? Anxious? Isolated? Lacking meaningful intimacy in your life? Struggling with addictive behaviors? Experiencing unresolved resentments and conflicts? If you’re ready to courageously address, heal and shift your dysfunctional patterns, send me an email or give me a call.

Incorporating and building on 30 years of Integrative Intimacy, Relationship, Self-Development and Psychotherapeutic training and service, my purpose is providing presence, resources, guidance, insight and support to you on your journey to emotional balance, deepening authenticity and a more fulfilling intimate life.

Here you will find tools, practices, blogposts, podcasts, videos, resources, links and other information to support your quest, explorations and self-realization.

I support and guide you in moving through challenging personal and interpersonal conflicts both soulfully and pragmatically.  By cultivating creative communications approaches we bring more effectiveness, functionality and fulfillment to our relationships. Come to me if you want to bring greater skillfulness with you to the realms of love, intimacy, relationships, sexuality and living life with passionate purpose. Contact me for a consultation to see if we are a good fit.

I am intuitive, holistic and integrative in my therapeutic approach, applying the method that best serves you, your needs and goals. I adapt to form interventions that are responsive to who you are and what you bring in. I work pragmatically, with somatic awareness and a depth psychological perspective, to help you emotionally balance, deepen insight and become more effective interpersonally.
