Announcement icon Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am currently conducting all sessions via telehealth (usually secure video). I am accepting new clients.
My areas of expertise include: (1) Adolescents and adults having difficulties managing stress, anxiety and worries, depression, and interpersonal problems. (2) Adolescents with challenges in their social relationships, academic motivation, and behavioral adjustment. Depending on the situation, I may address such problems with individual therapy, family therapy, or parenting work. (3) Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in youth and adults: providing useful skills and techniques for living a more productive and satisfying life with ADHD. (4) Couple therapy: Helping couples to improve communication, rebuild or deepen trust or intimacy, or understand and re-shape unsatisfying or distressing patterns of interaction.
My work is more present- than past-focused, and more active than passive. Some clinical perspectives on which I draw are cognitive-behavioral, acceptance/mindfulness, Gottman couple therapy, and family systems. Key to my work are building a trusting relationship, careful assessment, collaborative goal-setting, and incorporating evidence-based approaches.
I have been in clinical practice since 1990. I've also been a professor at Catholic University's psychology program for 25+ years, teaching courses including family therapy and clinical interviewing, supervising clinical training, and conducting research on topics including depression, coping with stress, parenting, and mindfulness in families.
