"Clients come to me when they are dissatisfied with their lives and/or overwhelmed by a situation or stressor. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor and work together with you to develop a treatment which incorporates your strengths, needs, and life's experiences. I also respect your wish to work on a specific area of concern short-term and/or to address a variety of complex issues over time. During the treatment, my clients report that they feel safe, supported, and challenged by me and that their lives are greatly enriched by the experience (see Healthgrades reviews by clients)."

"Often the circumstances that bring a person into therapy feel monumental and shameful. Other times the reasons for seeking therapy are unclear or hard to identify. Regardless of magnitude, life's struggles matter. They are real, and, because we are human, they are complicated. The relationship my patient and I build is the most important aspect determining the effectiveness of the therapy we do. When it feels restorative, shared, and caring, the relationship provides a uniquely valuable context in which we can take on struggles and uncertainties together, while we learn about the patient's individual needs, values, and difficulties."

"Anxiety? Depression? Stress? Life Changes? With over thirty years of experience in private practice, I have noticed how sometimes long-standing behaviors can actually create personal problems, cause relationship difficulties, and undermine the achievement of life goals. Working together, we can explore and identify these behaviors and change them. Individual Therapy helps to build confidence as you begin to understand and take steps to modify personal challenges. Couples Therapy identifies and builds upon personal and relationships strengths to repair interpersonal distress. Group Psychotherapy enhances and deepens personal awareness so you improve your connections with others."

"Years of research indicate the biggest predictor of therapeutic success is the relationship developed between the therapist and client. My clients joke that I am not your traditional therapist who sits back and nods. I see myself as a "change agent" whose style is interactive, warm and direct.

"We are all, I believe, a collection of parts ; some we are aware of, some we're not; some we like, some we don't; some enrich our relationships and some do just the opposite ! At times we can become hijacked by a part - saying things we don't mean to say, or muting ourselves so we don't say things we do mean. Ruptures in relationships or problems in the workplace can result. As we listen to our parts, with an open heart, healing can begin . My approach is described as warm, engaging , collaborative and, at times, playful."

"When I see a new patient for the first time, I try to assess what he or she wants from life or from what each person is struggling. I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work. Often in those situations, I work more intensely and more frequency to search for what is meaning to people and how they wants to navigate in the world in a freer way."
