"Often pain, anxiety, discontent or depression in our lives is telling us something. Our emotions are eloquent communicators. Through the process of therapy we can learn to utilize this information. With self exploration and new insights, we can consciously create richer, more meaningful, fulfilling lives. Even in the best of times, people have recognized the benefits of addressing, through counseling, the difficulties that limit their personal and work lives. In these very challenging times, familiar coping strategies may no longer be working and the insight gained through therapy can be even more valuable. In a safe, respectful, confidential environment, you can learn how to build more effective ways to relate others, reduce stress, and live more authentically."

"HOW I WORK: During the first consultation, I learn about my client's primary concerns. If he or she wants to learn practical tools to cope better, I use cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, such as relaxation and assertiveness training. If the client wants to work more deeply on issues that interfere with living a happier, more fulfilling life, I use psychodynamic psychotherapy. STRENGTHS AND INTERESTS: I often work with people who have health problems because anxiety and depression cause or exacerbate many physical disabilities. Relaxation techniques and hypnosis can help minimize pain and anxiety."
