For 40 years now, I've been doing psychotherapy with adults -- individuals and couples. I treat people with problems in living -- like anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, lack of assertiveness, and difficulties in relationships--or in crises, like divorce or bereavement. I also treat people with substance abuse/addiction, and their families and friends.

Do you like to make progress quickly? I have often been told that clients make more progress with me in ONE session than in months of past therapy. We examine your past, as there cannot be genuine lasting change without insight into how patterns developed, but we are focused on creating the life you want NOW. I work best with clients who are motivated, intelligent, and verbal. Teletherapy means you can see me easily. Visit drpsychmom.com or read my books for more insight into my approach. Scheduling = ASAP, we don't want to slow down the momentum that brought you here. I'm down to earth and no BS.

As an couples relationship and certified sex therapist, with over 30 years of experience, couples learn to unravel their dance and a structured communications tool, which fosters listening, understanding and empathy. Sexual and emotional intimacy are restored.

How does anyone choose a therapist? The variety of options are daunting, and while many, many people have been to or go to a therapist, it is not a topic easily discussed, so it can be hard to find a recommendation. Many people resort to picking the person whose face looked nice, or went to a school they recognize, or work in a convenient location or accept their insurance. Often these techniques are sufficient, but when they are not it is a great loss, as it takes so much courage to look for a therapist in the first place.
