About

Volunteering to examine one's life and attempting to resolve the mysteries of one's anxieties and problems is one of the most courageous and frightening undertakings in life. There is no such thing as a stress free life, but there is such a thing as learning to deal and conquer the stressors that plague us. My approach to therapy is eclectic. By that, I mean the initial job of the therapist is to work with the client to determine what suits the immediate needs of him or her at this troubled time.
Sometimes, situations may call for behavioral modification, hypnosis, or dynamic psychotherapy. There is no one size fits all. Therapy is about one developing one's own sense of uniqueness and ways of coping that lead to a more rewarding life.
My experience includes chief of psychology at the U.S.A.F. Hospital, Chanute,A.F.B., 10 years as associate clinical professor at G.W.U., and private practice for over 40 years. Fifty percent of my practice is devoted to working with other therapists in both treatment and supervision.
