I have 25 years of psychotherapy experience successfully helping people improve their lives. Talking about problems can be difficult, however, sharing concerns with an objective, professional therapist enables you to understand and overcome challenges. I treat you with respect, understanding, and confidentiality, and provide exceptional services in a comfortable and non-judgmental environment. I have a wide variety of professional experience with children, teens, and adults, in both short and long-term therapy, dealing with a broad spectrum of problems. In addition, I provide diagnostic assessments and consultations.
I work with individuals, couples, groups, and families regarding anxiety, anger, autism, depression, grief, stress, serious illness, and crisis management. Additional topics include marital and parent-child interactions, abusive relationships, alternative lifestyles, school concerns including academic, behavioral, social issues, and parenting facilitation.
I offer various appointment options: day and evening times, one-time consultations, and therapy intensives, which are longer appointment times. I am faculty at a university which enables me to stay current with evidence-based psychotherapy techniques. My office is at an easy-to-find location with discreet parking and entrance in the back.
