Announcement icon Until Public Health authorities lift the social distance requirement, I am suspending visits to my office. I do hold phone & Zoom sessions.
Effective therapy develops goals for change. Treatment also supports establishing new ways of experiencing life, behaviors and relationships. My private practice emphasizes making change through openness and trust, and building a personal plan that suits your unique life circumstance. There is no prescription for the length of therapy; some changes can occur with a few sessions and others may taken longer. Having realistic goals can help define when therapy is completed. Please call or email me learn more.
Drawing on the work of many original thinkers, I find developing an individualized therapy for each client is important for success and growth. The interchange between client and therapist refines our work and progress toward goals is always the test of how the therapy is being of benefit.
I can provide specialized Sexual Behavior Evaluations and psycho-social evaluations of individuals who have harmed others and provide sensitive treatment for individuals and families who have been harmed. Groups for individuals engaged in sexual abusing, pornography and family members are available.
