"After more than 30 years in practice, I have found that most clients need a combination of support, insight, and challenging interactions to help them grow and move past whatever obstacles they are facing. I work with individuals and couples on the most intimate aspects of their lives, including their sexuality, relationships, and life and death issues. My style is interactive, and employs uncovering family of origin dynamics, but also more practical, cognitive and behavioral methods to help make changes more quickly."
