At the present time, my practice is closed to referrals........ After practicing for over forty years, I still love my work. It is a privilege to become closely involved with my patients and their challenges. I believe I bring a special blend of intellectual rigor and emotional warmth into every treatment. No two patients are the same, therefore each treatment has to be tailor-made to your individual needs. I much prefer to do "talk therapy", combined, if needed, with medication, rather than psychopharmacology alone.

Here at the Venn Center, we offer patients a unique therapeutic experience. I conduct psychiatric evaluations and assessments, as well as provide both individual and group psychotherapy to clients of all ages. I also offer pharmacotherapy and medication management when appropriate. That being said, 25% of my patients are not on any medication since I employ non-medicinal interventions that help remediate psychiatric symptoms whenever possible. Offering these complementary services allows the clients I work with to feel empowered in their desire for change toward a healthier way of being.
