There is always a way! Listening for what is not said is often as important as what is said. No one therapeutic approach suits every client's need, so I tailor my approach based on what's best for the individual. My success with sober clients and others suffering from addictive disorders comes from my willingness to help them navigate the realities of life. Sometimes psychotherapy alone cannot cure mood disorders, just as drugs for depression and anxiety are less effective without concurrent psychotherapy.

Remember when doctors used to make house call? Well, I do. An easy way to keep your anonymity.

If there has been one thread woven throughout my career and life, it has been my commitment to helping others find their way through this life, whether through the therapeutic process or non-traditional group experience. I have found great joy working with others, both personally and professionally.
