"Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab."

"Practicing and learning new ways of thinking, reacting, and understanding are possible within the safety of a therapy relationship in which old beliefs are challenged and new ones are tested. Practicing new behaviors is easier when you understand why you needed the old one and feel ready to try the new. I am interactive and respectful of each person's uniqueness. Psychotherapy can be a deeply moving experience as well as transformative, and I can help you address and transform the inner beliefs and interpersonal difficulties that sabotage your success in love, friendship, and work. Years of experience have seasoned me as a clinician."

"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."

"I'm a "seasoned" psychologist in practice for 40 years. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "

Letting go of stale, habitual, suffocating stories which restrict you.
