Are you feeling overwhelmed or stuck as you navigate a major life change? You're not alone. Life transitions come in many forms; positive or unwelcome, anticipated or unexpected. These changes can challenge your ability to cope, whether you are going through a career change, grieving a loved one, recovering from traumatic brain injury, considering retirement, returning to work after a stroke, or are helping a loved one with dementia. The focus of my practice is to help clients find comfort in moments of change and reinvention, and to develop coping methods for the rest of the journey.

Hi! In a world where so many of us regularly get the message that we are flawed, I think it is important to start by saying something that we might not hear so regularly, which is, that it is okay to be you. But if I’m being honest, being yourself is not always an easy thing to do. As a therapist, I place priority in creating a therapy environment where clients feel safe to share the most authentic versions of themselves without fear of judgement. In addition to a safe therapeutic space, my goal is to assist clients on their paths towards self-expression and self-acceptance no matter where they are in their journey.

My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism, intellectual deficits, learning disorders, ADHD, as well as to address possible depression/anxiety that often accompany these conditions. In some cases, I am asked to perform testing to inform the efficacy of ADHD/ADD medication through the use of continuous performance testing. My approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs.

Congatulations on your decision to consider therapy! As a seasoned therapist, I've found that talking about life, intimacy and relationships is never easy. When you're having problems, it's even harder! Since 1978 I've been helping people overcome their most intimate problems. For example, there's so much shame and secrecy about sex, which often prevents people from seeking the help they need. I have extensive experience working with a wide range of problems. I specialize in assisting with sexual problems and have successfully helped numerous sexually compulsive people, and assisted many couples in repairing and revitalizing relationships.
