"Many of my patients are recovering from addictions of various sorts. Many of them, as well as other patients, have mood disorders (anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder). I also work with individuals and families struggling with problems in work and career, marriage and similar relationships, and what are often described as existential or spiritual crises--the lack of a sense of meaning and purpose in life. I involve families in the therapy process whenever possible because people don't live and learn as isolated individuals. Involvement of family and friends sheds light on the patient's situation and facilitates change."

"I enjoy helping adults of all ages move through issues to gain greater satisfaction in relationships, including the most important- with oneself. If our relationships are not supportive, it may feel we are missing out on the sweetness of life. I often use a cognitive behavioral approach, which is a way we gain greater control over what happens to us, and access greater choice in how we respond to events. It can help us strengthen communication skills, deepen intimacy and heal codependency. We can grow beyond lifelong issues; and replace feeling overwhelmed with feeling peace, learning to celebrate every step we take on our journey."

I've spent my career working with youth in a number of different settings - clinical, psycho-educational, summer camp, after-school, academic, wilderness trips and more. My extensive background working with this population provides me with the insight that when it comes to kids and teens, a "one size fits all" approach does not work.

"My expertise is in the area of major loss (illness, aging, dying, significant life change, bereavement) also caregiving and end-of-life planning. Such challenges are often overwhelming, even immobilizing. We can feel we have hit a brick wall, and may feel depressed, hopeless, anxious or numb. When we are able to be present to it we may discover surprising gifts, such as inner resources we might not know are there, ways to take better care of ourselves, and new understanding of what is most important to us. Some say that, amazingly, life can be transformed in ways that make it richer than ever."
