"Psychotherapy is one instrument of change for feeling better. For example, earlier psychic injuries may alert us when faced with challenges making us anxious, depressed, endure sleep problems or feel out of balance some way. Long term recovery from addiction, grieving and loss, chronic illness or pain may call for deeper work. Many stress points show up in relationships, at work or in how we feel. Life transitions (starting or ending a career, big changes in relationships/family, starting a young family or retirement ) are important passages in our lives and therapy can be a great guide."

"Are you here because you're having a "dark night of the soul" and feeling hopeless? Or do you want to change a relationship pattern that keeps repeating no matter how much you try? Perhaps you want to transform your low self-esteem and FINALLY believe in yourself...You know that something has to change, but what and how? You have most likely thought yourself in circles around the problem, but you cannot think your way out of this one. Does all that thinking send you spiraling out and anxious, your inner-critic having a field day?"

"I help people to rapidly get to the core issues which keep them stuck in their lives, be it unhappy in their relationships, chronically depressed, angry, anxious, or just suffering. What almost always what creates suffering is the avoidance of painful feelings, either feelings from the past or recent events. When we avoid these painful feelings, we develop symptoms and suffer. The treatment approaches I use are evidence-based, meaning they've been researched, tested, and proven to work. And they lead to accelerated and long-lasting change, normally a fraction of the time it takes with other types of therapy. "

"I'm a "seasoned" psychologist in practice for 40 years. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "
