"When someone lives through stressful or traumatic experiences it is normal for it to have a lasting impact. This can include feeling sad, frightened, ashamed, and out of control. Feeling like the weight of it has you frozen. It can feel isolating. The events can leave you fearing the connection you yearn for. Feeling like nobody understands you. Wanting to run. You may feel like you can't see through the darkness and struggling to feel safe."

"For the past 40 years I worked in Australia and America, as a therapist and educator. I was Director of the Family Therapy Program in Sydney and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University. I help couples and families improve communication, resolve conflict, and increase love. With individuals, I help them overcome depression and anxiety develop coping skills. Since I am also a writer, I frame individuals as characters in a story, called to face adversity, transform their life, and achieve happiness. I am the co-author of "Fighting for Love: Turn Conflict into Intimacy.""

"Are you having difficulty overcoming a problem, mood or behavior? If an issue is not relatively easy to change, then chances are, there is a block of some sort preventing the progression and flow of positive thoughts, feelings and behaviors. It is frustrating, discouraging and painful as an intelligent and competent person to work on a goal and not get the results you hope for."

"...Not just another therapist, but a Clinical Psychologist that is also a Certified Addiction Specialist. 'Substance abuse treatment..." the subject of my doctoral dissertation, is the mantra of my personal journey and commitment to help others find the path to a better life. I integrate state of the art brain science with psychotherapy, refining and building upon that which I have personally mastered. I am committed to compassionate client care, and to meet you exactly where you are... whenever you are ready, because, the truth of the matter is, that most people cannot recover on their own."

"My client's goals are to better understand his/her behaviors, thoughts, and emotions so that he/she is empowered to action, rather than reaction, in the face of life's challenges. He/she is eager to know him or herself better, to embrace the journey of self-awareness, thus leading to more freedom and grace, versus control, in interpersonal relationships. Most of all, my client wants to be truer to his or her genuine self: a better version of his/her genuine self, not a changed version. This will involve more acceptance and love of self and others."

"Is your relationship suffering due to addiction, infidelity or lack of communication? I work with individuals and couples who have tried to 'make things work' but find that the trust, the pain, and the sadness is too overwhelming to do it on their own. My role is helping you navigate a way out of the emotional maze that can feel lonely and hopeless. Feeling stuck leads to depression and anxiety that affects the quality of your life and your active participation in your happiness. This is the point when you socialize less, watch Netflix more, and find life and relationships mundane."

"Here is what I know: Life is beautiful and life is messy. Life is joyful and life is painful. There is not a linear trajectory. Life may be going along swimmingly, and then seemingly out of nowhere something can change in an instant and send one on a completely different course. Wouldn't it be nice to avoid these unpleasant truths? Unfortunately, the ways we attempt to avoid suffering usually create more of the very problems we were trying to ignore. "

"Change is an inevitable part of life. The lack of change or too much change can overwhelm us and derail our growth. No one escapes hardship and stress. During these times we need the trust, respect, and empathy of an impartial professional especially when family and friends are just too close to the matter. With more than 20 years of clinical practice, I've found that the healthier person reaches out for help beyond their immediate sphere. I see myself as a guide facilitating my patients' healthy risk taking and helping them manifest their visions for a better future."

Clients have told me they appreciate my compassion, finding it easy to talk with me about difficult issues. Psychotherapy is a process of self-discovery where you learn why you do what you do, as well as how to change behaviors. Many hide their authentic self, conforming to the expectations of others.

Your life roles are very important to you but you’re finding it difficult to find enjoyment in them.
