"As a retired school counselor with extensive background in dealing with substance abuse issues, I am best positioned to assist clients with difficulties related to social, academic or behavioral issues. I am particularly attuned to the ways in which parenting styles impact upon the functioning of children and to the most efficient ways of creating change to promote the likeliness of a person's or family's success and happiness. At times, these are most effectively addressed through an examination and fostering of an individual's goal-setting and motivation and how these may encumber his or her movement on the path to future satisfaction."

"An artist who never experienced being loved by a woman may look for a different therapy than someone who, after the collapse of the Twin Towers, has experienced crises of panic and is unable to travel the subway. Somebody may want to stop using drugs and alcohol, but may also be interested in finding a spiritual path. Most frequently, people do not know what they want from therapy. Finding out is part of it. Some go to therapy to solve a problem, and some to grow and look for the meaning of life, while others have both reasons."
