A good therapist has wisdom, compassion and the ability to connect deeply with you, while creating a safe healing environment. These are among the strengths that my patients ascribed to me during my many years as a Pediatrician... and that ultimately led me to a career in psychotherapy. Having raised two preadolescent daughters after my wife died, I have experienced many of life's tragedies, celebrations, anxieties and fears. With empathy, expertise, and kindness, I 've helped countless individuals and families work through their issues. I would look forward to doing the same with you.

I enjoy treating the common human foibles (depression, anxiety, couples counseling, etc.), but I also have much experience dealing with parenting concerns, the elderly, and the psychological impact of medical conditions. I feel each client deserves a type of therapy uniquely tailored to him/her.

Even in the deeply meaningful, and at times difficult, process of psychotherapy, I find humor to be an effective therapeutic tool when the intensity in the room prevents calm introspection.I am well aware of how the physical and emotional are frequently intertwined. Please see my website for additional details.
