My approach to psychotherapy is holistic. I not only treat the "tip of the iceberg" problems, but also address the deeper, "bottom of the ocean," issues. I treat the whole person and honor the mind-body-spirit connections, taking into account the client's cultural, religious and ethnic background, ancestry, race and immigration history. I recognize the complexity of each person's history and circumstances and employ a wide variety of techniques to guide my clients in their self-discovery.

If you struggle to stop or reduce substance use or other addictive behaviors, I can help. I use a harm reduction approach to understanding and treating substance use and abuse. Instead of focusing only on one’s addiction, this approach explores other contributing factors, such as co-occurring mental illnesses, family relationships, and medical problems. It encourages the client to explore their unique needs and background, and to develop their own treatment goals, which may involve moderation management, in addition to abstinence. I also offer treatment for other impulse control disorders, such as sex addiction.

We can't change our destination overnight but we can change our direction. A deep and felt understanding of how and why we live our lives can allow us to reorient ourselves to a more fulfilling life. I believe that therapeutic treatment must be tailored to each individual person seeking change. I work with adults who have endured trauma, feel anxious or depressed. I see couples that have drifted apart, struggle with anger, parenting difficulties and adolescents overwhelmed with the highs and lows of emerging adulthood. I also work with expectant parents and infant parent dyads having difficulty connecting with each other.
