About

I’m a licensed clinical psychologist with over 25 years of experience as a therapist, university professor, supervisor, and researcher. I’ve helped people struggling with anxiety, depression, addictions, traumas, problems in living/coping, phobias, OCD and feeling overwhelmed/burned out. I worked in an inner-city psychiatric emergency room where I dealt with acute life-and-death psychiatric crises. I’ve treated people with a very wide range of needs whose goals were to find meaning, value, peace and joy in their lives. I employ an integrative therapy approach/style.
Although the foundation of my knowledge of psychology comes from my academic training; important life experiences, that obviously cannot be taught in school, have immensely enriched my understanding of the human condition and suffering. These experiences have greatly deepened my ability to develop genuine and meaningful connections with my clients.
Reaching out to find a therapist is a very personal and difficult thing. I provide a warm therapeutic environment so that my clients feel safe and accepted without judgment. I use all of my capabilities to “be with” my clients in their places of suffering so that meaningful and helpful discourse and improvement can occur.
