"I've been in clinical practice for over 30 years, treating adult, adolescents and children, helping them create more productive and healthier lives and relationships as well as establishing a stronger and more confident sense of themselves. The therapeutic process is an exploration of oneself, ones present and past relationships, traumas, and impressions that have created unhealthy patterns and conflicts which have influenced our capacity to live creative and satisfying lives. The therapeutic relationship is the vehicle through which these changes are made."

"I believe that clients have inherent strengths and abilities to solve whatever presenting problem they’re faced with; sometimes life’s obstacles and challenges get in the way of one’s ability to tap into those strengths. I approach every client through a strength-based lens to empower and help clients develop a more positive/hopeful perspective about the presenting issue causing distress at that time. I utilize a collaborative approach, working with clients to achieve set goals they wish to achieve and depending on those goals, so does the modality of therapy (individual, couple, parents, or family).

Or, maybe, you feel like you have lost a part of yourself because you are always taking care of family and friends. Or, maybe you feel like you are letting people down and not living up to the high bar you set for yourself. At the end of the day, you do not have much left to give.

Using a multifaceted approach, people are able to move through obstacles and fears, adapting to change in a more positive way. Treatment of anxiety disorders is a major focus of mine. People are often surprised to learn how much control they can exert over anxiety using cognitive behavioral and other techniques.
