"Counseling and therapy describe a relationship between two people for the sole purpose of helping one. My work centers on helping people become more effective in their lives and their multiple roles. Breakthroughs and revelations do happen, but they are far less common than most people think. The majority of therapy is, simply, hard work. Doing the work with someone you are comfortable with, whose only focus is on helping you, makes therapy a collaboration that most people find very helpful, often in unexpected ways."

"Many of my patients are recovering from addictions of various sorts. Many of them, as well as other patients, have mood disorders (anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder). I also work with individuals and families struggling with problems in work and career, marriage and similar relationships, and what are often described as existential or spiritual crises--the lack of a sense of meaning and purpose in life. I involve families in the therapy process whenever possible because people don't live and learn as isolated individuals. Involvement of family and friends sheds light on the patient's situation and facilitates change."

"People often ask me, "What is the purpose of therapy?" I believe there are a few answers to that question. First, you come to therapy to defrost grief, unexpressed rage and other negative feelings, e.g. traumas, losses, betrayals. You also learn to re-parent yourself. Second, you come to have a better transition in your work or love life, or to improve your performance and personal relations. Finally, you get to share your dreams and goals in a safe environment, with no judgment, and to produce amazing action plans to manifest your best life ever."

"The way psychotherapy is practiced has a lot to do with the mind set and life experience of the psychologist. I have been in private practice since 1980, and beyond the traditional training for psychologists, I also trained extensively in an approach known as Psychology of Mind, or Health Realization. This is a cognitive approach that is very down-to-earth but rooted in principles akin to those behind meditation, yoga and similar traditions that were developed to enhance optimal human functioning."
