( No space available at this time) I have been doing this work for over 30 years and I cannot imagine ever retiring. I don't need to keep working forever, but I love what I do and I do it because I want to make a difference in the world, plain and simple. Whether it be getting arrested for civil disobedience or helping someone discover the reality of change, this is what moves me. Please note that my practice has shifted to a teletherapy framework only, which means that sessions are conducted mostly through a HIPPA compliant video conferencing platform or through telephone.

In helping children, teens, and their families, I employ a combination of compassion, creativity, understanding, and humor with clinically proven treatment methods. During my 15+ years of experience I have found that a good collaborative therapeutic relationship combined with skill-based strategies and techniques results in positive and lasting changes. I typically begin treatment with a thorough assessment and treatment plan. Treatment incorporates both parent and child interventions. I routinely communicate with pediatricians, teachers and school personnel to assist in resolving the issues of children and teens, with parental permission.

Sex was great once but now there is so much tension and anxiety around it that you can't enjoy it anymore. It seems like work. You catch yourself wondering if the grass is greener on the other side or if your partner is cheating. You wish you could turn back time and feel what you felt for each other when you first got together. You want to feel wanted and desired again and that you matter. You want to lay in bed and not wonder who the person next to you is and how you got to this point.

Engaging in therapy is a vulnerable and sometimes scary process. I specialize in working with couples either in a committed relationship or marriage. Working on relationships I often find the thing that brings couples together initially, gets lost after the "honeymoon" period is over. It is easy to get complacent with all of life's stressors. Being a strength-based therapist, I believe that anything is possible if both people are willing to work. And to be honest, therapy is work! I view my clients as the experts in their life and work together with them to create positive change.
