Announcement icon Having given up my physical office because of covid, I now only see clients on zoom or on FaceTime. I find phone sessions are not helpful.
I enjoy adult clients of all ages. Couple therapy is a specialty; I have advanced training, and have taught couple therapy. Even in child issues, I find working with the parents may work best. Individuals who are committed to living more productively and fully and enhancing their relationships will find me supportive and encouraging. I have a particular passion for working with elderly clients who even in their 80s are interested in understanding / improving their lives. At the moment I am working with a woman in her mid-80s and helping another, 80-year old woman to get comfortable with her computer so that we can zoom.
My 40+ years of experience as a therapist enable me to give you a realistic, caring perspective on the issues you are struggling with. My years of experience in both individual and couple therapy combine with my own life experience to help me understand your issues. Since Covid I no longer have my physical office but I find zoom surprisingly effective .
I believe that therapy is like this: you are driving down a road and encounter some big boulders blocking your way. I can help you get the boulders out of the road - YOU are driving. I mean by this that we all have our own best answers but we are somehow blocked from accessing them when we need them. I enable my clients to overcome anxiety and loss.
