Individuals and couples who come to me are usually feeling frustrated and stuck in a variety of ways, and are unable to see how to move ahead. We begin by working together to find a shared understanding of their difficulties from which we chart a path toward constructive change. My listening with respect and understanding can be helpful in itself. The assistance of a trained eye can reveal patterns of behavior and emotional reactions which are self defeating for my clients. Constructive alternatives to these patterns can then be considered and practiced with my guidance.

I believe one of the most valuable experiences someone can have in their life is to be truly heard. You may find me well-suited to helping you as I'm calm, empathic and nonjudgmental -- people have told me. I treat clients who struggle with anxiety, depression and relationship problems among other difficulties. In the past few years, my skills and knowledge have been deepened in particular by discovering that our connection to others is a survival need--and a key source of difficulties. But connection can be an essential source of healing and growth.

I treat a wide variety of clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and personality disorders. However, I specialize in the treatment of addiction to drugs, alcohol, and sexually compulsive behaviors better known as “sex addiction.” The reason I don’t prefer that term is because it oversimplifies both the subjective experience and the symptoms. For example, overuse of pornography, or countless hours spent browsing single’s ads online doesn’t necessarily involve sex, but it can be compulsive.
