"One of the greatest issues that people face in their lifetime is how to cope with death and loss due to divorce, chronic health issues, and any major life transitions. Unfortunately, all too often people just try to move on, doing their individual best to "be strong" and keep going as they did before. Your feelings of grief and loss can be more than you can bear. I offer a supportive and nurturing environment so you can understand those feelings, allow them to be expressed in a safe manner, and help you adapt to the realities of your changed life. "

"Counseling and therapy describe a relationship between two people for the sole purpose of helping one. My work centers on helping people become more effective in their lives and their multiple roles. Breakthroughs and revelations do happen, but they are far less common than most people think. The majority of therapy is, simply, hard work. Doing the work with someone you are comfortable with, whose only focus is on helping you, makes therapy a collaboration that most people find very helpful, often in unexpected ways."

"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."

Others want more active guidance to grow to the next level or to reduce suffering. I am pragmatic and try to meet each person's specific needs.
