I've been in practice for 30+ years, supervising and training other therapists. My style is active and down-to-earth. I focus on the present, rather than past, and avoid advice giving and psychological jargon. I try to help people: 1) get more in touch with their feelings and where those feelings come from; 2) use their awareness for better communication and decision making. I work with clients on relationship and family problems, difficulties on the job, aging, moving, sexuality, care or death of loved ones, bad habits, just getting bogged down and feeling stuck, as well as serious physical and emotional issues.
I offer a sliding fee scale to make therapy more affordable. I am mindful of the needs of people with limited incomes who require on-going treatment, or are seeking help for urgent problems. Due to their heavy administrative requirements, I am not accepting 3rd party insurance.
Finding a therapist who is easy to talk to and you like can be a challenge. I offer a free lengthy telephone conversation or several email exchanges before meeting to help discover if I'm right for you. I believe that short term or periodic treatment can be very helpful.
