About

There comes a time when we need help. I appreciate the courage anyone demonstrates when they make that call. I hope to create a space where individuals and families can receive that trusted assistance. I have been a therapist for thirty years. I was a tennis pro for ten years before that. I am aware of the process of change. There is a timing when an individual, or family, is ready to make those adjustments. In working with children, I involve the whole family. I especially enjoy the travels that the adolescent makes, and the perplexing attempts parents make in adjusting to this challenging phase. I work with addictions.
I help improve communication and conflict resolution while reducing the impact of anger. Finances and sexually intimacy are frequent issues. We explore early childhood and family patterns that have carried into the present. I use cognitive behavioral therapy. (change your thoughts and habits) I really try to help couples rediscover the magic they once had.
My experience as a tennis pro has assisted in promoting performance enhancement, helping people maximize potential and manage anxiety. I work with depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, ADHD, grief and recovery from abuse. I have been trained in EMDR, which is somewhat akin to hypnotherapy and assists in working with veterans and others with PTSD.
