About

I tend to be quite direct in my approach and begin therapy with a combination of focused goal and solution oriented work. As the therapy proceeds, I then branch out into deeper issues concerning the unconscious, dream work, unresolved trauma and more. Additionally, I specialize and am not limited to, treating depression, anxiety and chemical dependency. Lastly, I also enjoy working with adolescents, couples and families. ** I host a podcast called "Look, Just Tell Me What To Do" which addresses issues related to mental health which is available here https://lookjusttellmewhattodo.podbean.com/ or on most podcast platforms.
In the short term, I am directive and structured, and will work with you, your spouse or your child to put out any "fires" --acute stressors such as job loss, divorce, heartbreak or addiction issues need to be resolved before the deeper work of therapy can begin.
I invite you to email or call should you or someone you know be in need of counseling. All conversations and communications are, of course, entirely confidential.
