Warmth, supportiveness and professional integrity are three principal values which have guided over 30 years experience in mental health. I have had a longstanding focus on trauma, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociation, addictions to substances (alcohol, drugs and prescription medications) and to self-destructive behavior (anger, the internet, gambling). My emphasis is on providing accurate diagnoses of current psychological problems and addressing those problems with techniques that are research and/or evidence-based. Clients consistently report rapid relief in fewer than 10 sessions; however, many clients pursue further therapy, making dramatically positive and often unexpected changes in their lives.

My approach is problem-centered which builds each person's confidence through immediate, measurable easing of emotional difficulties. I use techniques drawn from cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapy in treating anxiety, depression, phobias, dissociative disorder and PTSD. Meaning, purpose and spirituality in life are also issues often considered in therapy with me.

I have worked with survivors of extreme trauma including 14 years at the VA with veterans of Vietnam, Korea, World War II and the Persian Gulf Wars. My recent practice has included adults surviving abuse as children; workplace threat evaluations, accidents, critical incidents; motor vehicle accidents and sexual assault.
