"I believe that a good psychotherapy treatment should facilitate a process of self-inquiry, where one discovers, over time, how to become more authentic, both with oneself and with others. I practice deep listening with my patients and hold space while they explore their inner world, thoughts, feelings, fantasies, and visions. I specialize in treating people with mood disorders, distress associated with chronic medical conditions, and substance abuse problems."

"I'm a therapist and coach who helps people seeking relief from life's challenges and those seeking to gain insight and live better, fuller lives. Sometimes, people want to change troublesome patterns. In other cases, they seek to focus on specific areas such as anxiety, depression, stress, substances, anger, esteem, relationships, career concerns, grief, aging or sexuality. Left untreated, these issues may "take over" and reduce our ability to enjoy life. I also specialize in working with people with ADD/ADHD as well as people with health and wellness concerns (adjusting to/managing an illness/pain, or improving health)."

"Therapy can be a source of tremendous relief and gratification. Unhappiness and anxiety that feel unbearable can lessen and disappear when you have someone who can help you understand the reasons for your suffering. A good therapist can also help you more easily get your mind off upsetting thoughts that preoccupy you. Or if you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways, studying it with a therapist can be of enormous help. Ideally, you will leave an initial consultation with a new way of thinking about the problem that brought you in."
