In my experience of over 30years in clinical practice, I have learned to use a variety of approaches to help people with a broad range of life problems. I began with a grounding in psychoanalytic theory,tempered with an awareness of cultural and socio-economic differences, enhanced by a foundation in medicine. My way of working is to listen carefully to develop an understanding of each person's background, history and world view in order to help that person understand his/her motives, emotions,behavior in order to resolve conflicts and lead a more fulfilled life with more satisfying relationships.

Hello and welcome, current, and future clients. I always ask my clients, "How are you feeding your mind and body?" Your health is a reflection of who and what you allow into your space, as well as, what you allow into your body. The therapeutic process will be held in a safe, non-judgmental space allowing clients to talk about their frustrations, goals, wants, hopes, and fears. If you have experienced a traumatic past or are currently facing difficult decisions, allow me to support you on your journey to find and embrace purpose and peace.

Please note that all sessions are via tele-medicine. I believe that clients seeking counseling services desire tools for living a better life, and I strive to provide those tools. I do not push change on clients, but rather helps them articulate how they want their lives to be, and then collaboratively set out to put the foundation in place to create that life. I feel that clients gain the most from the counseling experience when they feel supported, encouraged, and understood by their therapist. This process works best in a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space, which I provide.

Are anxiety, anger, alienation, sadness or confusion causing you to feel overwhelmed trapped or hopelessly thwarted in reaching your goals? Or do you feel a deep longing for change? The call to deepen your understanding of yourself, of others and your situation is often signaled by negative thoughts, painful feelings, or a work or relationship crisis. The opportunity to talk with someone who is accepting and takes a practical approach restores hope, rekindles desire, resolves conflict, and directs the flow of energy towards positive movement.

During initial sessions I gather information as to the nature of the problem and the outcome desired. Together we assess strengths, and then obstacles to be overcome, whether environmental, relational, emotional or physical. It can take a single session or a number of sessions. At this point I recommend specific therapeutic modalities to be used to support client(s) to attain their goals. For some, the process is slow and delicate, for others vigorous and brief, a place to come back to when life's crises inevitably occur. For all - an experience in discovering a larger life of Resilience and Reconnection.
