Announcement icon I am currently seeing patients for individual sessions via a secure online video streaming service called ZOOM which is similar to Skype.
Offering Face-to-Face or TeleTherapy (online video in real-time) psychotherapy. With over 20 years of clinical experience helping people change, I can appreciate the challenge of searching for the right therapist. You want a caring, professional but most of all an EFFECTIVE therapist. The point of all therapies is to do one thing- HELP YOU TO MAKE POSITIVE CHANGES, You're seeking a therapist because whatever was working up until now isn't working as well. You've come to a crossroads on your path. My task is to assist you in choosing the right direction. I specialize in the use of Cognitive-Behavioral and Hypnotherapy to address:
anxiety, depression, social anxiety, dating anxiety, creative challenges or blocks, relationship and marital issues, divorce issues, parenting issues and issues of adolescence. I have a rich history working with individuals, couples, families; career transitions, addiction recovery and romantic confidence building. I give practical suggestions, homework and
new methods of behavior to accomplish outside of session. My practice is very real world and straightforward. I specialize in confidence challenges: occupational, financial, romantic, sexual and social. I work with professionals, creative artists and others in the entertainment, corporate, legal and medical industries. I welcome and embrace diversity.
