In my 45 plus years of practice, I have found that most patients, before coming to see me may have tried to the best of their abilities to solve their problems. They may have consulted other psychotherapists or other allied professionals before coming to see me. The central task is for us to identify the nature of their psychological puzzle, and to find ways to collaborate in finding solutions to them. I have a particular interest in people who may have neurocognitive deficits. Also, I have an interest in children and adolescents whose parents are in the divorce process.

Are you having the same arguments over and over? Do you feel like you can never make your partner happy? Are you frustrated and disappointed with your relationship? Is the loneliness and isolation overwhelming? I can help you figure out how to get out of the cycle of repetitive, unproductive communication and get to the heart of the matter.

Choosing a therapist for yourself or a family member can understandably be a very difficult decision. Reading bios and looking at photographs of therapists can be helpful, but I believe it is essential that you feel as comfortable as possible before committing to working with any therapist. Without commitment or fee, I invite those interested in therapy to speak on the phone or meet with me in my office and talk about their concerns. My intention is to provide you with the best assurance that I am understanding of your needs and can be of help to you or your family member.

The stresses of life can isolate and alienate us from those we rely on for support. A therapeutic relationship is one where you can be connected and understood without the judgment inherent in your other relationships. Therapy should be a place where you can be comfortable being yourself and learn the tools and skills to improve your satisfaction with life.

My goal is for clients to leave each session with a skill(s) to manage their stressors and to increase their sense of control. In addition to providing a safe space to seek support, vent and/or engage in introspection, I help clients learn how to cope with distress, increase school/job performance and build self-esteem.
