About

Since 1987, I have logged approximately 50,000 patient contact hours with most mental health disorders. In addition, I specialize in depressive and anxiety disorders, couples work and substance abuse problems. My clients have described me as engaged, interactive and empathetic. I make this claim with confidence because I have observed how easily my clients relate their most personal issues to me without shame or fear. Emphasizing mindfulness, I focus on dynamic tensions in the therapeutic relationship that help patients feel understood in the here and now. My relational approach is intended to help patients emotionally unfold.
In couples work, the focus is expanded to make the immediate relationships more constructive and workable. The sessions focus on unexpressed and feared feelings that undermine loving relationships. Patients have reported feeling a sense of aliveness, immediacy and hope for their relationships when hidden feelings are discussed in safety.
I am considered an expert in substance abuse disorders. Oftentimes, substance abuse disorders mask mental health problems. My expertise can help make the connection between the two, thereby opening a pathway of recovery for both the mental health and substance abuse problem. Non-Judgement and compassion guide my practice toward self and others at all times.
