"I specialize in brief (6-24 weeks) psychotherapy for individuals, couples and groups with chronic pain and other health-related challenges, especially anxiety. I have expertise in treating people with gastrological illnesses and serve on the medical advisory committee of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. I also have extensive experience working in hospitals with medical providers. Clients typically see progress within 6 weeks. Treatment goals generally fall into two categories: meeting work/home responsibilities and increasing self-care. This process involves setting achievable short-term goals while keeping long-term goals in sight."

"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)."

"Emotions can sometimes be difficult to bear-sadness, worries about yourself and others, fears, painful recurrent interactions and relationships. Working with an understanding professional to explore feelings and expectations about yourself and your relationships can be the key to clarifying troubling emotional states. These feelings can cause recurrent painful states, or push us toward repetitive or self-destructive behaviors. Exploring these feelings in a safe relationship can cause feelings about yourself and others to shift, opening to new ways of thinking and behaving. This allows for greater flexibility, enhanced creativity, a better relationship with yourself, and better connections and relationships."
