About

I am now able to provide telepsychology through a secure platform for video and audio. The program works with most computers and some smartphones. Telepsychology services are supported by most insurances. Over 30 years of practice, I have found it helpful to focus therapy on four areas: (1) the quality of a person's relationships and how these relationships impact the person's primary emotional concerns, (2) how the person's primary emotional problems impact their loved ones, (3) developing coping skills for particular emotional problems and (4) practical problem solving solutions for various life issues.
By the second session, we develop a general idea of the person's current problems, what led up to them and consider any medical conditions complicating the picture. Then we draw up a list of about three to five issues to address and focus on in therapy. My manner is calm, deliberate, quiet, and open but also active.
My current interests are in the areas of neurobiology, anthropology, and the psychological aspects of integrative medicine such as nutritional strategies, exercise strategies and stress management strategies.
