Announcement icon In light of recent times, I am available for phone, video, and office sessions, when needed. Office hours will be extended to weekends.
Are you facing obstacles in your relationships, work, and/or education? These obstacles may be, feeling stuck; general unhappiness; sadness; high anxiety; anger; low motivation; confusion; and difficulty adjusting after a disappointment, failure, or loss. You do not have to hit bottom for the change to begin. You have taken the first step by looking for help. I am a licensed therapist who uses the most effective methods available for improving your mood, reducing your stress or improving your relationships. I help you find solutions to a wide range of life challenges.
I specialize in working with couples and individuals. I will support you and teach you the skills so you can manage your own issues. I believe a considerable amount of progress can be made in 8-10 sessions. However, I do not limit my client sessions to a specific number.
I have additional expertise in issues related to sensitive subjects such as the risk of losing families, marriages, and/or careers due to excessive substance use; I offer individual solutions to foster the desire for sobriety by establishing an atmosphere of support. I look forward to working with you.

I have known Dr. Opthof for over ten years, during which I have been extremely impressed with his clinical skills as well as his easygoing manner in relating to others. I have also had the pleasure of working closely together with Dr. Opthof on a number of challenging cases and his expertise has always been appreciated. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Dr. Opthof for any teen or adult in search of an outstanding therapist, particularly if seeking help in overcoming an addiction.
