My focus is on helping others change painful patterns. I am a psychotherapist who values a close, focused type of listening. This is connected to an emphasis on the unique cultural, environmental, and psychological factors that contribute to current distress. I am currently accepting new patients, with evening and weekend hours available. Specialty areas include chronic pain conditions, addictions, and transition to college. If for whatever reason, during the initial free phone consult we discover that I am not a good match, I will work with you to find someone who is able to meet your needs.

I specialize in treating trauma, chronic illness , anxiety, depression, and grief.
Life is full of challenges! And while we work through and overcome many obstacles that come our way, there are times when we feel too overwhelmed to manage them on our own. Challenges can take many forms, whether as regular self-criticism, fear, depression, shame, managing chronic pain , processing a loss, conflict with someone important in our lives, or surviving abuse. These forms of suffering deserve kindness, understanding, and support. The right guidance can help us move through and decrease these symptoms so we can feel greater contentment and connection.

Your depression or anxiety can be a result of a separation, loss of a loved one, a career, physical illness , or a very charged parent-child situation which you are experiencing.
I put you at ease, get to the heart of the matter and help you put things in perspective. If you are grieving I approach your problems with empathy and professional understanding. Problems in the workplace are invitable when you consider how much time many of us spend there. It's important that you recognize persistent patterns of conflict, it is the key to resolution.

Chronic Pain sufferers: I work from the perspective that chronic pain is constructed both physically and psychologically and that awareness of our unique emotions, ideas and expectations about our pain is a principal therapeutic ingredient toward healing.
Sometimes normal life challenges like changing careers, becoming a parent or changes in relationships can contribute to difficult emotions and result in behavior that make us feel stuck, unproductive or even self-destructive. For many, these experiences also leave us feeling anxious, depressed and sometimes struggling with chronic physical conditions. Exploring how your current challenges relate to your temperament, past experiences and needs can give you the tools to feel better. I can provide the support and guidance needed to help you explore, develop awareness and make informed decisions you can feel confident about.

Although each persons experience is different, I believe I understand the pain , the anger, the frustration, the sadness, that accompanies many of life's events.
I believe that the only way therapy works is if a good partnership is formed between client and therapist. Goals need to be set together. I believe there needs to be a practical approach to solving the immediate problem as well as an understanding from where the problem stems. I also feel it's important for the therapist to be available to the client whenever possible. I am the coauthor of All You Need to Know about Narcissism that was published in Nov 2011 and have begun to write my next book about ADHD

People call me "The Relationship Expert" because I have helped them resolve issues in relationships, or helped them find and keep a relationship! Unlike many others, I consider it a privilege to deal with serious life problems, such as illness , aging, dying, and grief.
I am warm, open, and informal. People feel safe and comfortable enough to trust me with their secrets, fears, and intimacies. I am aware that by the time you call a therapist, you want some relief! So, I work from the "Top Down" -- giving stress-relief, relaxation, new perspectives, and ways to help you to feel better quickly --as well as from the "Bottom Up", so you understand why you are the way you are, and how you might change what you want to...
