As a licensed psychologist with over twenty-five years of professional experience, I work collaboratively with individuals helping them overcome challenges in life which can quickly spiral into depression or anxiety. I am real and direct as a professional, maintaining a calm and helpful stance, offering practical interventions individuals can use in every day life as well as to process the impact of early childhood issues. My areas of specialization are trauma and anxiety disorders, as well as depression and disorders of childhood/adolescence. I work with children and adults individually as well as in family sessions.

Looking for the right therapist can be a very difficult process. My therapeutic approach is client-centered and strengths-based. I understand how difficult it can be to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences. With this in mind, as your therapist, I will create a safe space that is non-judgmental and supportive.

Whether you are struggling with relationship decisions, would like to review previous life choices or need help with parenting, I look forward to assisting you in the process. Client's arrive with divergent treatment needs and ideas about therapy and its function. I encourage my client's take the lead while I support their exploration toward a successful threrapeutic outcome. Sometimes that can be done in 3 or 4 sessions and other times circumstances require more time. It is important that my clients feel safe and I earn their trust.

In over 40 years of practice, I have assisted a countless number of individuals and couples to rapidly get to the core of personal problems that have kept them from living up to their full potential. I specialize in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (IS-TDP) and have trained directly with Habib Davanloo, M.D., the innovator of this powerful and effective form of treatment. My therapy approach is geared towards helping clients, in a sensitive an empowering manner, to quickly identify the different mechanisms they have destructively used to avoid being in touch with their true feelings and themselves.

A Tailored Therapeutic Approach: You are unique and so is the issue you are struggling with. I do not believe there is only one path to a healthier life. In my experience, one style of therapy does not fit every person or every challenge. My responsibility, as your therapist, is to identify the blend of therapeutic approaches that best connect with you and your personality. In this way, together, we can effectively overcome your obstacles and bring about the change you seek and deserve. Therapy is not cookie-cutter. It should not pigeonhole. I work with you, not a textbook version of your issue.

Our only job as parents is to make sure that our children are provided with all they need to achieve their dreams and become successful human beings. Sometimes what they need spans far beyond basic necessity and digs deep into emotional and mental well-being. In my practice, I work collaboratively with children and their families to help identify and solve challenges or obstacles that get in the way of achieving life's aspirations and feelings of happiness. The beauty is that children's minds are malleable, helping them to discover who they are through their inner strength is the greatest gift one can take away from therapy.

I love to help people ask ‘the big questions’—Who am I? How can I be my best self in the world? What is my purpose? What will my legacy be? These existential questions can arise in times of transition such as graduation from college, when choosing a career, during mid-life, at retirement, or in contemplating our mortality. Some people have grown up or spent much time in a religious or spiritual community whose beliefs or practices they can no longer support. Some have trauma due to these experiences and feel they could benefit from having a wise witness and guide through the experience of reflecting on and choosing their values.

You have the power to change your life. We all have moments when we struggle with periods of difficult transitions, relationship conflict and loss. At times we become overwhelmed with feelings of sadness, worry and confusion, not knowing where to turn for answers. We get disconnected from our authentic self and lose touch with our life's meaning and purpose. Together we can work to identify obstacles and formulate strategies to help you unlock your full potential, pursue your goals, and make the changes you are seeking. I will help you sort through your thoughts and feelings so you can rediscover your power and reclaim your life.

The love, dedication, and commitment toward the people I meet in my life. The passion and dream I’ve had to become a psychologist my whole life. Winston Churchill once said, “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”Even in the most challenging times of my life, I continued fighting for my dreams. Obtaining my doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy from NCU will help me increase my knowledge, skills, and abilities as a therapist. As a person who has confronted poverty and health problems, I am committed to helping families, individuals, and couples.

It is better to call me than using email. I have worked with men and women, from young adults to the elderly, and individuals who have come from all walks of life. My background has been psychodynamic, where one's early upbringing, culture, and environment are explored along with the persons present day struggles and concerns. I also have experience with cognitive behavioral treatment as well as mindfulness and relational therapy. Because everyone is unique, I like to provide the kind of treatment that will be most beneficial for those I meet. I take most PPO insurance as well as fee for service.
