About

I am a psychotherapist with 35+ years of experience. I believe the relationship between therapist and client is unique. This uniqueness develops when a person knows there is confidentiality and can safely talk about anxieties, sadness, loss and whatever is interfering with the person they wish to be. I have always felt clients personal problems are not the insurance companies business. Due to my experience I do not accept insurance and payment is out of pocket. Years ago before the pandemic I responded to a post from a therapist stating skype sessions were as beneficial as in-person sessions. The pandemic forced online sessions
Although psychodynamically and family trained I am eclectic in my approach. People are different and there are times I switch to a cognitive approach. I always take family history as it isn't unusual for our developmental years inform who we become as adults. This insight can be helpful. I guide people so they can grow.
I've been advised that my years of experience are not valued. I chuckle about that. Perhaps jargon changes, approaches are tweaked a bit. Nothing in my opinion replaces excellent training, ongoing consultation with mentors, & seminars and life experience. My own psychotherapy has been invaluable in conquering fears, death, anxiety and depression.
