"My approach is based on the observation that individuals often are unaware of factors that determine their emotions and behaviors. Treatment seeks to uncover unconscious motivation and find the underlying conflicts causing current problems, e.g.depression, anxiety, relationship and work problems. -Do you want help sorting out your choices and not be told what to do? -Are you a "curious" person, who asks yourself in different situations- "How did this happen?" (and often blame yourself for the outcome)?"

"Welcome... Do you ever find it difficult to stop the exhausting ongoing negative thoughts on your mind? Do you dream of having a peaceful harmonious relationship with yourself and other important figures in your life? Or, do you simply wonder if therapy works?! Comprehensive research in the effectiveness of therapy versus no therapy indicate that, in fact therapy does work! However, you may wonder how one can possibly talk to a "stranger" about his/her very inner thoughts and feelings? The answer is that it may not be easy for some but it certainly worth a try!"

"All meaningful lives involve pain, there is no escaping this. Even if we cannot avoid pain, we can learn to rise above it and still create a life worth living. Life will never be unbearable due to circumstances, but only from a lack of purpose and meaning. My job is to help you look at your situation differently, and to develop a committed action plan to make the positive changes you have been wanting to. Like the Serenity Prayer says, we need to accept the things we cannot change, and have courage to change what we can, starting with ourselves."
