I am committed to helping individuals and couples gain insight and make behavioral changes to enhance their lives. My focus is on relationships with friends, family, romantic partners and/or the workplace as I believe engagement in these areas is an important aspect of living a satisfying and purposeful life. I also work with those struggling with addictions, compulsions, self-destructive behavior (especially eating disorders), and balancing the competing demands of life. My professional strengths are reflected in a nonjudgmental stance and an ability to help people examine themselves and make the changes necessary to live in a more fulfilling life.

Hello. If you are considering psychotherapy, a good "fit" with your psychologist is essential. I have been a practicing clinical psychologist for over forty years. During that time, I have also been a psychology professor at Montgomery College. My theoretical orientation is a pragmatic blend of cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic and behavioral, but I am also a firm believer in the value of positive psychology. I try not to diagnose people, but rather work with the entire individual, especially with their strengths. I am not the "silent, blank-screen" kind of therapist.

Self esteem issues, body image problems, self worth are all originating from early problems that were never addressed. By going to the core of the problem, we can fix the problem that keeps on weighing on the individual and help them find a solution. Digging deep is somewhat needed to understand where it all came from and find a treatment plan to allow the person to let go of the negative and focus on the positive. It is crucial to keep an open communication module between client and therapist so we can both find the best alternative plan that will fit the client needs. I cover all groups, all ethnicity, all races in all my groups.

Sometimes the circumstances that bring someone into therapy feel monumental or even shameful. Other times they might seem hard to pinpoint or articulate. The reasons people seek therapy are countless, and they all matter. They affect our thoughts and our relationships, often quite deeply, so they are indeed worthy of attention. My purpose as a therapist is to develop a relationship and a context that feels restorative and safe through which my patients and I can grapple with any and all concerns imaginable. Through intimate conversation and our shared experience emerge feelings, buried fears, and the previously unknowable.

TELETHERAPY APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE. Ideally, I want to create an environment that allows my clients to find their way, learn about themselves, and grow to be leaders in their treatment. The approaches I use give clients the ability to take the initiative, evaluate and then make a plan of action. Making the decision to enter into therapy is a challenge in itself. But in the end I want to meet the client where they are at and go from there. Where applicable I use Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, play therapy, career/coaching and other modalities in practice.
