I treat adults, couples, families, and children. I view treatment from a developmental perspective and will meet the client wherever they exist on the life span continuum, and whenever they have difficulty negotiating the next step. I have an expertise in disorders of attachment, as well as exposure therapy for trauma, and I've trained many classes of interns and psychologists, in the treatment of these disorders utilizing neurological correlates to psychological mechanisms. My focus is on training the individual to understand his/her own process, so that dissociated material can be integrated, bringing the individual into the present moment.

It all begins with a story. This is the very story that has taken shape in your body. This story makes you who you are today. Within the pages of a story, we experience the unique and individual holistic makeup of a being. This includes the biological, psychological, spiritual, and social distinctions that formulate the very DNA of your story.

Our lives have been turned upside down, as a nation and as human beings. It is not only the fear of contracting the COVID-19 virus, the fear that someone we care about may succumb to the virus, but also our financial stability and the upheaval to our lives, what we considered normal has been suddenly torn asunder. As a species, humans are highly adaptable. And, we will adapt to this too. Please reach out for help during these very trying times. It's better to act sooner than to wait if you feel your mental health is taking a toll.

I am familiar with many issues that distract us from our need to feel loved and accepted by others. Problems that began in childhood or a single event that changed your life can be softened or solved with a compassionate psychotherapist who understands your challenges. Many people have found that our sessions can lighten the load, lessen depression and/or anxiety, teach you to set boundaries and heal relationships. After many years as a therapist, being married for over 30 years and raising a son, I have much to share. It begins with the courageous decision to send an email & begin your journey of self-discovery & inner peace.

My practice focuses on helping individuals, couples, and families who are suffering from emotional or physical pain or the aftereffects of trauma. We help them resolve the traumatic experience, as well as its consequences (e.g. physical pain, stress, disability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, medication dependence, isolation, etc.) Although most of our patients have not responded to prior therapies, we've had outstanding success in helping them move from feeling a severe loss to finding a new and positive beginning. We love to work with people who are ready to change and eager to learn how to do it.

During these Covid times, depression, anxiety, mood swings and relationship issues are playing a prominent part in our lives. I specialize in a personal approach that address who you are, what you’re experiencing, and where you’re trying to be. My orientation is Jungian, which involves compassion, dream work, the unconscious and insight. That which we can understand is more bearable and easier to shift. It results in a sense of richness and meaningfulness. I am also pragmatic in my use of cognitive behavioral tools, which support the process. Ignoring nagging issues rarely results in them going away. It can get be better.
