Announcement icon While I am seeing some patients face-to-face, I am also using tele-therapy online with Zoom or FaceTime during this Corona virus pandemic
My focus is on non-judgmental, positive personal strength and resilience in resolving conflict and trauma. I work extensively with individuals who have experienced trauma in their childhood and adult lives and subsequently live with residual traumatic stress disorders, anxiety, and depression. I also best assist people afflicted with mood disorders, including bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, panic disorder, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder,and health problems e.g. chronic pain. A significant aspect of my practice is relational therapy; I find that marriage can be far more demanding than either partner. My goal is to live in the present intentionally, and happily.
My style and approach to helping people is compassionate, positive, non-judgmental, pragmatic, and eclectic. I tend to be quite active and direct in personal and relational problem solving, and believe honest, clear, direct, and supportive feedback is essential in assisting people. I believe mindfulness coaching is essential to living happily in the moment.
I employ a range of practical interventions in my practice, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, self-hypnosis, EMDR, Solution Focused, and Symbolic-Experiential marital and family therapy. Involving oneself in psychotherapy is a very challenging and courageous experience, and I have published five professional articles about this process.
