Announcement icon I will meet with clients in my home office for 45-50 minute sessions or video conference with them on zoom. The initial interview is free.

About

My ideal client is any adult who finds themselves stuck in a recurring pattern of behavior that frustrates them or the people around them and who want to change. They are people who fall in the categories called personality disorders . I also have a lot of experience using EMDR and narrative therapy to help people recover from PTSD.
I’m trained in both psychiatry and psychotherapy; specifically cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and existential therapy, narrative therapy and EMDR. I prescribe medication but only in the service of helping clients to be more empowered.
If you are a person who has had trouble learning from your own mistakes I might well be the right doctor for you.
