I am a caring, empathetic psychologist who has considerable skills in helping people through crisis. I use a blend of exploration of past experience combined with practical, concrete advice and techniques for how to best grapple with current issues. My strengths are my intuitive understanding of people and their often deep-rooted issues, my ability to translate this understanding into a plan of action, and my gift for tailoring each treatment to each individual. I believe in being interactive and giving feedback and direction, but also believe in each individual's capacity to set their own goals and measures of success.

I work with people unhappy in relationships or work, who are in need of direction for school, career, or life transitions, or have self-sabotaging behaviors. I also work with family building, including infertility issues and gay families. My research on gay dads was recently quoted in The Atlantic.

With significant experience in treating illnesses such as anxiety, depression, and trauma, I focus on the process and results. I believe in using humor to help people. This quote from an Eagles song resonates - "So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key".

My senior group is for women who may be dealing with issues of isolation and loneliness, aging and health concerns, financial concerns, family discord, and finding meaning in retirement and after raising a family.
