My clients are not interested in receiving a psychiatric diagnosis, but are seeking an expert who provides psychological services. My broad range of training & experience allows me to bring my expertise to, for example, attorneys and judges needing input on a case, to family business owners trying to sort out costly (in dollars and relationships) conflicts, to business owners trying to retain their employees, and to individuals seeking input for life problems. I offer a practical performance-oriented approach and for those who would be better helped with insurance-based psychotherapy, I assist them to find the appropriate referral.

It happened again. The hint of sarcasm. The blatant disrespect. “Why do I put up with this?” you ask yourself over and over. When it happens, your mind is screaming on the inside, yet there you stand. Frozen. Most of the time with a smile on your face. You may as well be invisible. They don’t see the hard work, the anxiety, the struggle, the loneliness. Often you don’t notice it either as you stay so incredibly busy…except for on those days when there may as well be an elephant standing on your chest. It’s heavy, and you couldn’t move if you wanted to. The nagging voice inside blames it all on you. Worst of all you believe it.

You're feeling stuck. Perhaps you know what’s holding you back and haven't been at a place in life to address it, or maybe you’re just overwhelmed by all life keeps throwing at you. Either way, it's hard and it keeps getting harder. And now, add social distancing and quarantining and face masks, and it feels out of control.

Holding on to past negative experiences prevents further exploration and healing. In a sense we get stuck in patterns of thinking and relating that hold us back from true potential and empowerment of our best assets.
