About

I am a licensed psychologist with 25 years in clinical practice. Specialties include coping with change, depression, anxiety, addiction, compulsive behavior and more - with recent interest in smart phones, screens & technology. I help clients to better understand, face and manage problems through a wide range of evidence-based treatments such as cognitive therapy and other collaborative approaches. The goal is a gradual reduction of symptoms and ultimately, increased confidence to make changes that lead to better functioning. My approach to treatment is based on individual needs and personal goals, as no two people are the same.
My strength is in helping clients manage uncertainty in an ever-changing world. The study of psychological stress & resilience since 1995 has been especially useful for these and other existential issues in the aftermath of threats from 9/11 to COVID. In my experience people get better by facing their fears and changing their thinking, not by avoiding.
My formal training is in cognitive, psychodynamic and solution-focused psychotherapy with frequent updates in contemporary approaches to modern problems. I do not accept insurance but keep my fees at a reasonable rate. I currently see clients in-person and on Zoom and encourage you to call for a confidential consultation free of charge.
