Working with clients from all kinds of cultural and ethnic backgrounds is something I love doing. My first private practice was in Vienna, Ausria where I received referrals from the United Nations. My passion is in assisting with transformation. I custom-fit your sessions to what works best for you. When I experienced therapy as a client it involved much suffering; therefore I made a commitment to make therapy as comfortable, fun (laughter is a great healer) and as easy and efficient as possible. I think "out of the box" and work well intuitively.

I enjoy working with people who have addictions or anxiety or something else weighing them down, working with them for a relatively short period of time, and watching them become energized and passionate about their lives. I believe that my clients know themselves better than anyone else. I work to help my clients achieve their goals. I believe I can best serve people by using what research has shown to be effective. I do not believe therapy should take a long time; most of my clients graduate within 3-6 months. I work on an time-sensitive basis so some require more sessions.
