About

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over thirty years of experience helping individuals and couples to experience happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients describe me as both empathic and logical, and I am interactive in style compared to the more passive style of therapist. As an individual therapist I tailor my approach to your own strengths and style of learning, often combining elements of cognitive, humanistic, and insight and depth oriented approaches as indicated. Together we may address a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-worth, stress, grief, anger, and relationship or work problems.
As a marriage or couples therapist, I primarily utilize Imago Relationship Therapy, which is a powerful approach for transforming conflict or withdrawal in relationships into an experience that restores connection. This includes situations in which one of the partners has had an affair.
I am practicing by teletherapy in both DC and Great Falls at the moment. I have returned to in-person in Great Falls, but will not return to in-person in DC. I will continue by teletherapy for all DC and Great Falls area patients.
