I help adults suffering anxiety, worry, stress, insomnia, depression , self-doubt, and stifling blocks and fears that prevent them from doing what they want to do.
I believe our mind & body are completely intertwined. I believe there are limitless possibilities within every human being. You are not your symptoms. I do not believe in limits set by a diagnosis or label for you to identify yourself by, instead I help you find your true nature, your Self, & peace within in the midst of difficulty, change, loss, - life! I've been a psychologist for over 25 years, yet the way I help people today is entirely different than a decade ago. Today I help adults using brain-based talk therapy & mindfulness, using an integrated approach to emotional wellness by focusing on your whole self and life today.

Life can be overwhelming. Ongoing problems can leave us frustrated and defeated. Anxiety, depression , trauma, drug and alcohol dependence, relationship conflict, or isolation make it even harder to cope. The joy and spirit of life that we once had seems far gone. We may feel like we've been holding it together for weeks, months, or even years. At our lowest we lose perspective and believe things will never change. We don't want to be this way anymore. Life shouldn't feel this hard.

Healthy relationships are my goal and my mission. I'm especially passionate about working with couples, both premarital and marital. I achieve this best through a program called "Ultimate Integrity." Most of my couples say that a lack of integrity is a major problem in their relationships and this (UI) program can be very helpful to heal the wounds of lies and deceit and replace with truth and love. Many couples also struggle with stress, depression , anxiety, and addictions. I'm very proactive to identify effective strategies and coping skills to resolve these concerns.

You're looking for a therapist because you know somethings not right. You struggle in your life, and you don't know why you do ... and it's been this way for a while. I'm 70 years old. I've been through it and I've done my own work and can help guide you to finding your true coherent self without the self-doubt, the depression , the anxiety and the dysfunctional relationships. When we are young, we are very susceptible to programming that shapes our self-image. The defeats that we had then are the defeats we feel now. Lifespan Integration therapy gets to the source of those conflicts that hold these untrue beliefs & reactions.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
