I believe therapy is about connection. Therapy is based on the connection with your therapist to create a meaningful, supportive space to explore your most vulnerable emotions. Therapy can help you strengthen your connection with the people in your life in a positive and hopeful way. And most of all, therapy can grow your connection to your most authentic self. Therapy can help guide and support you through times of stress, build communication and interpersonal skills, and develop a deep understanding of who you are and what you want out of life.

If you feel stuck, are unhappy but not sure why, are not as proactive as you want to be, my therapy addresses these issues in a timely and active way. Sessions are committed to enhancing your ability to identify what may be in the way of achieving your life goals and dreams and identifying steps to take. I work best with clients who are serious about the work, do homework assignments and set short-term and long-term goals. Many of my clients make lasting profound changes in their lives in a short period of time. My focus is treatment that restores lost purpose, commitment and direction.

My focus is to develop a relationship with the client. This is called the two person model which is different than the old fashion practice where the doctor is one up and the client is one down. Rather, the two person model attempts to understand the client through questions and mutual discussion. I am not a silent therapist. I give feedback and remain fully engaged with the patient. Together we build a rapport. I adhere to a humanistic approach.

Life can be a challenge at times. If you feel discouraged, hopeless, anxious, sad and distressed you are not the only one. Sometimes it is hard to just wake up in the morning, trapped in a negative frame of mind. Past traumatic experiences hold us hostage with memories that interfere with our daily functioning. We want to feel good about ourselves, but we do not know how and what to do about it. We want better relationships. Our children and teenagers are facing difficulties with bullying, depression, anger, anxiety, and ability to focus.​ These issues affect their mental, physical and academic development. Therapy can help.

One of the things that haunts me about our all too human condition is how much pain we have to suffer in the ordinary conduct of our lives. Who do we turn to when we are in such despair that we don’t know where to turn? I believe all of us suffer from occasional feelings of fear, alienation, depression, confusion. Some suffer from these symptoms more than others, but we are all otherwise more or less the same. I try to connect with your deepest existential issues and help you get to know yourself intimately, in order to bring the passion and happiness than has been missing back into your life . . . or perhaps, for the first time?

Sometimes you or someone you love can experience an emotional state of mind that seems to be coming from nowhere. This experience can cause suffering, can interfer with communication and blocks us from our most meaningful goals. Emotional states of mind can be echoes from the past. "Emotional Echoes" are incomplete memories that revisit us again and again. In their correct context they make perfect sense, are rational, and reasonable. When they are accurately identified, insight into how they affect our present life, goals, communication and relationships can be seen.
