Before I came to America I worked with soccer teams helping their players deal with anxiety, something I still do. Twice per year I return to England so therefore clients who are relatively independent and not in crisis are the best suited to working with me. Consequently, I do have a network of excellent support therapists who work with some of my clients while I am away. Many of my current clients are not sports people, they often have to cope with big work and home pressures. I try to help them locate their inner resources while maintaining a supportive stance throughout our meeting.

At times I apply principles of sports psychology to other aspects of life.
I strive to be a therapist who is empathic and non-judgmental while utilizing insight to help patients to increase self-awareness. I have witnessed clients become more empathic towards themselves as well seeing their suffering decrease. Therapy can markedly improve the quality of clients' relationships, work, and play. An important aspect of therapy is looking at your feelings in the present moment or "here and now" with me. The therapeutic relationship itself helps heal and we will analyze it at times. I aim to create an environment where the client feels safe and free to express themselves to increase self awareness.

In addition to psychotherapy, I specialize in psychological assessment, diagnostic assessment, general neuropsychological testing including evaluations for dementia and competency, sports neuropsychology, and separation and divorce counseling.
I combine a unique and specialized form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based on Choice Theory with a Family Systems approach to treatment. I view maladaptive behavioral patterns as a result of inadequate or dysfunctional life choices. I assist my clients in recognizing these patterns of behavior and encourage them to draw realistic and practical solutions to the things that are hindering growth and happiness through the choices they make in life. I work collaboratively with my clients using a "here and now" problem-solving technique and develop a treatment plan that uses psychotherapy, exercise, nutrition, and social support networks.

My clients come to me for practical, tangible guidance and support on how to overcome the challenges they face. I use an evidenced based approach, combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, that helps clients regain control of their lives, reduce unhelpful racing thoughts, and develop resiliency and confidence. Unlike traditional "talk therapy," where much your time is spent discussing vague concepts, my approach is to create realistic, attainable solutions and help you identify the roadmap to achieve them. About half of my practice involves working with teens/young adults and half with adults.

So many of us come to therapy because we are hurting. Whether this hurt manifests as relationship issues, addiction, anxiety, depression, or stress about world events, I love helping people discover their inner strengths by healing the parts inside that hurt. Wounds from the past, coupled with internal conflict and judgements about self and others stifle one's ability to grow and change. By compassionately healing these wounds and releasing judgments we quite naturally feel more whole, connected, and joyful! In this space we are free to create the life we want.

I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression.
