Intrusive and upsetting thoughts can be frightening and make us feel trapped inside our own minds. It is my goal to help you to regain comfort with yourself and confidence with others. I help many clients manage withdrawal effects from drugs, alcohol, and prescription medication, including antidepressants."

"Relationships can bring happiness, but also create longing and loneliness. They can preoccupy us and destroy our sense of safety and self-respect. If you feel stuck, overwhelmed, afraid, or lost, or are unable to decide about staying or leaving, have resolvable conflicts, unmet needs, or feel devalued, I can help, particularly around issues of codependency, trauma, communication, intimacy, and self-esteem. You'll gain awareness in your first session, then quickly see changes in handling emotions, conflict, and boundaries. Whether seeking individual or couple counseling, you'll find solutions, feel more empowered, and an improved sense of well-being."

"It seems like most therapists focus on women's issues, so where do you go when you're a successful man who struggles with secrets that are nearly impossible to talk about - and they threaten to destroy your health, your career, and your marriage? You used to like your life, and you want to keep it. You don't have time for dancing around the issues. You want something direct and active - not a bunch of woo-woo "feelings" stuff. You want strategies that will really work to get things back on track in your life before it all implodes."
