About

None of us was prepared for a time like this. We were raised with expectations of a predictable environment and future. These current stressors markedly strain the coping skills that we were taught or saw demonstrated in our childhood. Isolation and loneliness are leading stressors. As social creatures, to now be treated as "The Other" and avoided as though we were not there, often increases resentment,anxiety,depression and relationship dysfunction. To borrow from William James, we may experience it as "fiendish punishment". Effective communication can reduce the pain of isolation and powerlessness.
The struggle to perfect communication amongst us and even within our own minds has long been a driving force in my professional life.For over forty-five years practicing adult Psychiatry, I have utilized a wide range of psychotherapy approaches. This flexibility has provided the best context for individuals and couples to apply specific steps.
Clarity about goals and steps one can employ allows effective symptom reduction more quickly. At times, I prescribe medication to support the therapeutic process.I will enjoy being helpful if my style works for you.
