Anxiety is highly treatable but finding the right therapist is key! Successful treatment depends on the right fit and the right therapy approach.

I believe that mediation is the smarter alternative for couples and their children during this often difficult time in their lives.

In the Buddhist tradition it is noted: "all that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become". This quote reflects my psychological approach to the problems people bring to me. My approach is as pragmatic as it is philosophical, as caring as it is confrontative and as serious as it is humorous. This may sound contradictory but life is not linear and therapy is a microcosm of life. The relationship that develops between a therapist and the client is the heart of the engine of change that defines therapy.

Dealing with being overweight has an enormous impact on everything about us. Many of us manage so many things and don't understand why this issue is so hard and different for us. We can become critical and feel defeated. We do, however, have realistic solutions-we just have to unlock our obstacles. I specialize in helping my clients work through these all too familiar patterns in a supportive and empathetic way. Maintaining my own 100+ pound weight loss has given me tremendous insight on managing a lifelong mental battle with obesity. Treatment helps you cope with life's obstacles.
