As a psychologist specializing in treating addictions and trauma, I work with men and women to recover from self-sabotaging patterns so that they can thrive at work and in their personal lives. I treat substance abuse, sex and relationship addictions, Internet addictions, anger issues, eating disorders, men's issues, trauma, and intergenerational trauma. I empower patients to tap into their insight, intellect, creativity and spontaneity to achieve therapeutic breakthroughs. I am supportive and directive, compassionate and challenging, process-oriented and goal-oriented. I approach therapy with warmth, authenticity, and a depth of concern for my patients' total well-being.
I help patients overcome intimacy struggles, heal and deepen relationships, and enrich their lives. My resiliency-based treatment approach emphasizes the authenticity between patient and therapist as a model for other healthy relationships. I provide a therapeutic context for patients to grow while creating robust recovery and social networks.
I facilitate men's, women's, mixed gender and couples' groups. I also offer intensives to help individuals and families delve into challenging, conflictual issues. I present nationally and internationally on topics related to addictions, trauma, anger/aggression, cultural issues, eating disorders, group psychotherapy, and professional issues such as compassion fatigue.
