"You’re overthinking things, second-guessing yourself all the time, worried you’re not keeping up with your friends/peers. You want to be your best self, but not sure exactly what that is or how to get there. You’re afraid to do the wrong things at times and do nothing as a result. When you and your partner talk about your relationship you mean well, but say the wrong things or it comes out the wrong way. Falling short on friendships, dating and your career and you’re not sure why. You need clarity and a way to move forward, but turning to friends or family doesn’t feel like the way to go."

"I'm a "seasoned" psychologist in practice for 40 years. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "

"Your potential is much greater than you even think. But psychological burdens -- such as depression, loneliness, guilt, and anxiety -- rob you of the freedom to feel, act, and choose. Self-protective strategies left over from childhood, ingrained but faulty ideas, and an absence of self-acceptance make life very, very difficult. How we work together will depend on what you want and what you need. Cognitive-behavioral techniques can be very valuable. But for many people, the path includes uncovering buried emotions, giving the "true self" a chance to emerge. Our closeness gives you the courage you'll need."

"How has addiction consumed you? Ever felt that your life is like a car flying downhill with a failing brake due to your struggle with substances? Behind the bills? Increasing no-show at work and family functions? At risk for breakup/divorce? Ill at ease around people? Losing your child(ren) to CPS? For those who have dealt with addiction, have you ever caught yourself chronically relapsing despite repeated efforts and attempts? Ever wonder what gets you stuck in that revolving door of rehab despite your commitment and involvement in AA meetings and sponsorship? Experiencing " dry-drunk" in abstinence?"

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."
