"It takes a lot of strength to honestly assess your current situation, to confront certain truths, and to commit to making needed changes in your life. If you are ready to start making those changes, you may be wondering what to expect in the therapeutic process. In a supportive alliance with you, and after you identify your goals, we will map out a strategy to address your concerns, work to increase your self-awareness, and focus on developing greater personal insight and behavioral change. The outcome depends largely on commitment while silencing the harsh internal critic that many people have."

"I enjoy working with married people and single people, gay people and straight people, men and women, therapy beginners and treatment seasoned soldiers. It is hard to narrow down to a "type" as I have experience with a broad array of people and presenting issues. That said, I do seem to connect especially well with creative people: actors, writers, producers, etc. The most important aspect of your relationship with your therapist is chemistry and that is tricky to predict from the reading of a profile. Better to call me or meet in person so we can see about the match."

"I specialize in working with gay individuals and couples. As a gay child growing up in the midwest, I endured years of bullying, ridicule, and humiliation. As an adult, my work with a good therapist was key in helping me to re-cast my self image, accept and value myself for who I am, and transform the way that I interface with the world at large. So profound was this work that it moved me to become a psychotherapist myself. Whether you are a young person trying to cope with isolation or various forms of abuse,"

"We all have aspects of ourselves of which we are aware as well as aspects of ourselves that are not in our awareness because they make us uncomfortable. These conflicts get expressed in symptoms such as anxiety, sadness, feeling stuck in repeating unwanted patterns of behavior and unfulfilling relationships. These experiences can lead to a sense of hopelessness or shame. It is not necessary to live the rest of your life feeling unhappy, hopeless. My thirty years of experience helping people understand those thoughts and beliefs that have kept them in distressful patterns has shown me that there is always hope for someone in pain."

"If you are moving through a difficult transition or wanting to tend to the deeper psychological aspects of past traumatic situations or persistent addictions, my work can help you. My training is based in a psychoanalytic perspective coupled with mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and a genuine appreciation for sexual, cultural, and spiritual diversity. A psychoanalytic view suggests that current problems may be sourced in unconscious patterns, often rooted in the past, that would benefit from attention and understanding. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy helps reduce addictive behaviors and anxiety through the practice of gentle self observation and present moment awareness."
