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.

We all have shared realities that change day by day with each experience and interaction with individuals. Whether it’s childhood experiences or current circumstances leading you towards healing through therapy, I want to help you understand and heal. I've helped people with everyday challenges such as cultural or relational issues or deep-rooted trauma, grief, depression, and anxiety. My focus is on the person-centered approach and starts where you feel comfortable and together helps you overcome what brought you to therapy.

Life can be rough. Perhaps you are wondering if things will ever get better. Perhaps you want to learn more about yourself and the patterns that are linked to your unhappiness. Perhaps you want to explore your relationships, or work life. Whatever the challenge, psychotherapy can serve as powerful means to get curious and institute the growth and change you are seeking.

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.
