"Your emotional health is #1. Clients know I've listened. I'm a friendly professional who specializes in relationship issues. You'll have someone truly dedicated & caring during difficult times. I gently, yet quickly, guide people back to their innate health (predating traumas). I share perspectives in a frank & down-to-earth manner. I also talk a lot; I'm not a therapist who sits, nods his head and say, "uh, huh," for most of the session. I've decided to meet with a small number of clients weekly. I don't believe good therapy is provided any other way."

"Psychic pain can feel crippling; a destructive tyrannical force wreaking havoc on our inner and outer worlds. We each have a story of pain that asks to be heard until it is no longer capable of hurting us. On entering the world we quickly learn to mould ourselves to the beliefs, expectations and needs of others, particularly those on whom we depend for our basic survival. We lose sight of who we are in the midst of accommodating others. At some point, it becomes necessary to question our adopted narrative and learn how to write our own script."
