About

Over the past 42 years, I have devoted my practice to the treatment of people who want to feel happier with themselves, their relationships with their children, spouses, or family of origin. Many times people suffer from low self esteem, anxiety and depression. Parents come in with issues around their adolescent's behavior. Adults wish to improve how they communicate to their spouses, or would like to deal more effectively with problems at work and with bosses, or other authority figures. Many need help with everyday functioning, and some are struggling with confidence issues and initiative to set positive goals for the future.
I assess how a person is functioning in their everyday lives. My goal is to help strengthen a person's ability to observe himself and identify the patterns of behavior that are unproductive. When one gains more control of one's life, this improves self image, and interpersonal relationships.
I treat each person as an individual with a unique history, and utilize the tools that are appropriate to helping them, based on their level of functioning. I may utilize cognitive behavioral techniques, psychoanalytic ego psychology and systems therapy, but my assessments are psychoanalytically informed.
