About

Are you feeling stuck, or that your life isn't right? Possibly your relationship is not working? Perhaps worrying is preventing you from reaching your potential? Maybe you have tried medications, but are still unhappy? My psychotherapy approach enables you to fix problems so they will not come back. For example, I help you learn to manage your emotions so they don't control you, to become more assertive, to be less co-dependent. I treat depression, anxiety problems, marriage conflicts, alcohol problems, sexual addiction, and GLBTQ issues.
My specialties are relationship problems, anxiety, managing stress, difficult depression, sexual addiction, problems of gay men. If you are uneasy about taking psych meds I would be a good fit for you. Also multiple personality disorder, and other personality-based problems.
I am a seasoned psychologist with over 25 years experience. I am an active participant in your therapy, and will challenge and confront you as appropriate.
