About

I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and depression, using multiple approaches (see below). Many of my clients are college or graduate students, and young professionals. But I also work with older adults. Clients say that they have an easy time talking with me, and that they feel a strong connection and rapport in the therapy. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship and in the healing process, but I also believe in the importance of using various tools and techniques to help clients achieve their goals.
I have over 30 years of experience in treating anxiety and depression, using multiple approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness and relaxation techniques, as well as general "talk therapy", based on a psychodynamic approach. I believe that the combination of these three approaches, is really the best medicine.
I have demonstrated success in combining these approaches, which has enabled my clients to feel heard and understood, while they are learning new techniques to reduce stress, anxiety, and the blues. I look forward to hearing from you, as you start your journey to improve your mood and/or reduce your anxiety, in order to create the life you want.
