"I use an interactive, supportive approach to help adults, teens, couples, and families work through anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and self-defeating patterns of behavior. In my work as a developmental psychologist over the past 25 years, I have dedicated my career to understanding and reversing the effects of early adaptive patterns that evolve into difficulties later in life. I enjoy helping people work through these difficulties, some of which can be extremely painful and debilitating. Without such help, this can be an impossible task. Lack of self-acceptance and expectation of rejection are always near the center of the problem."
