About

I do largely cognitive behavioral therapy with individuals, couples, and families. I take most insurances including Medicare. Fees are adjustable in case of financial hardship. Couples counseling urges the maxim first listen, then be heard. In both individual and couple or family counseling, we identify strategies thus far used for solving problems or enhancing life, and we explore alternatives that may prove more effective. Additionally, we identify and hopefully abandon self destructive or ineffective strategies.
I tend to enjoy most working with reasonably healthy people dealing with problems in living. Frequently there are issues of communication, needs identification and assertiveness. I focus on identifying when a person's solution is itself the problem and help to identify a more effective solution.
I have been doing supervisory work and have occasionally functioned as an expert witness in cases requiring psychological expertise.
