I bring experience and expertise through therapy & medication management. If your psychiatric medication does not relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety or mood instability, you may need a second opinion. Mindful moderation can help you cut down on drinking, stop smoking, or cope with binge eating. You don't have to do this alone. Another area I deal with is acceptance of aging. With older age comes more unwanted challenges than at any other phase of life. We don’t know what will alter our lives, nor when these changes may occur: illness, loss, memory or loneliness, I can help adapt and enjoy the pleasures that older age can bring.
Finding balance in a dizzying, ever changing world is a challenge. The result is often anxiety. Medication can usually help as well as learning strategies to control thoughts that trigger feelings of stress and anxiety. You may not know what life would be like without high stress. Perhaps you want to find out.
If you are feeling stuck, often medications are helpful. I also help people gain a clearer understanding of who they are. and what they want. Let me help you to enjoy your one, unique life.

In our very first session you will tell me what the problems are and we will get to work on finding solutions. I offer both therapy and medications. I often help people who want to drink less, eat less, improve their sleep or enjoy better relationships. Through my years of practice I have seen the greatest successes in those who have been a partner in treatment.
