Feeling understood, feeling helped, and feeling supported are at the core of psychotherapy. This process also includes developing and enhancing self understanding. Many people contemplate calling a therapist for a long time, unsure of what to expect or how to proceed. Together, we can explore and understand difficult issues in your life and gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Through this process, we can begin to offer you new emotional experiences. In a safe setting with warmth and engagement, I provide an opportunity to gently move through what is bothering you most.

A good connection to your therapist is often the most important ingredient to successful therapy. Choosing a therapist you can relate to is essential. My working style is collaborative and direct. I pay particular attention to how my clients are conceptualizing their conflicts (both internal and external), their relationships, and their history.

My approach is best described as interactive, personable, nonjudgmental, and aimed at bringing about change that's both meaningful and real. I tend not to view people's issues or concerns as a form of pathology or neurosis, but rather as particular problems in living. I see each person as genuinely unique, and so avoid cookie-cutter approaches. My role is to help individuals and couples work through problems as effectively and efficiently as possible, in a way that builds confidence, self-respect, hope, and, ultimately, a fresh way of living life.

I cannot move mountains for you, but I can help you climb. Facing fears, healing from loss, finding meaning and joy - these are the inevitable tasks of life. Therapy may be your first step or your last resort. Often people avoid it all together because they believe their pain is too great, worry they will be judged or that their situation is too complicated. Some people believe they should solve problems on their own or with family and friends. Everyone needs help sometimes. While family and friends may want the best for us, they often come with opinions and past hurts.

I work with individuals and couples who are seeking to transform their inner and relational conflicts into opportunities for growth and life change. I have seen deep transformation take place in clients when they begin to learn compassion for themselves and begin to address the source of their symptoms so that true and lasting change can occur. Clients I work with most are those suffering from mood disorders (Bipolar, Depression), complex and developmental trauma, PTSD and relationship issues. I also offer support to family members of individuals with mood disorders, PTSD and ADD/ADHD.

Are you making it through the day, looking to the rest of the world as if you're doing just fine, but deep down inside you feel stuck and uninspired? Do you wonder what is holding you back from thriving in the world? In our hectic world we often find ourselves afraid to take risks that could jeopardize the stable lives we've created for ourselves. We remain in jobs, relationships and old patterns that no longer work, while symptoms such as anxiety, depression, stress, anger and self-defeating patterns keep us from making real changes to our lives.

I initially specialized in treating PTSD, and trauma therapy continues to be one of my main passions. I have a diverse experience with a wide range of mental health/neurological disorders but more importantly, an ideal patient would be one who is open and willing to process difficult topics and memories as opposed to continuing to engage in avoidance (a short term bandage for a long term injury). I describe my style as collaborative, directive, and solution oriented, but also find power in allowing clients to process deep rooted issues in a non-judgmental way.

I could imagine you’re a bit skeptical. I’m sure you’re thinking that living the life of your dreams is not possible for you because of past mistakes, current circumstances, or because it hasn’t worked before.

In 40 years of clinical practice I have come to think of what I do as a unique form of education. Psychotherapists "teach" not so much by telling people what to do (although good advice is often useful), but by helping clients to find the strength within themselves, and the needed support from those around them, to address the difficulties in their current lives in new and more effective ways. A therapeutic environment enables clients to develop a new way of understanding their life experiences that promotes higher self-esteem, increased capacity for intimacy, and greater effectiveness in work.

Through many years of teaching and practicing Brief Psychotherapy, I have learned the value of a highly active, focused and interactive approach-- both for long term and brief psychotherapy. Whether the patient is an individual or a couple, I view my task as helping to define appropriate goals and keeping the therapy on track. While the purpose of the therapeutic journey is mutually decided and the patient is an active partner in evaluating the route, I particularly direct the journey when it turns to the past. While history is invariably interesting, therapeutic efficiency requires exploring only what's potentially most useful.
