About

There are many pathways to a happier and more fulfilling life. Deciding to change, taking the risk to meet a new therapist, isn't easy. In 40 plus years as a psychotherapist, I have found that with work and skilled support, individuals and couples can reach goals, change, improve and develop their solutions to their issues. Although you may feel blocked, our work together will help you find the path to a happier life that is right for you. The most difficult decision is to take the risk and try therapy.
Anxiety, panic disorder, OCD, and depression respond well to cognitive behavioral therapy, education, and relaxation techniques(and exposure/response prevention for OCD). Research shows that people with many issues, including chronic illnesses/conditions also can benefit significantly. Resolving one issue makes other problems less difficult to work on.
My approach is mainly results oriented and cognitive behavioral, but eclectic in order to meet each person's needs. Stress management is often a first step, as well as a focus on self talk, problem solving, managing feeling states, and learning.
