Practice Description: I believe that it is a brave step to reach out for help and take action to change ones life. As a result, the selection of a therapist who is the best fit for you and your particular personality is an important choice. Let me make a few comments about my work in order to help decide whether contacting me would be useful.

I am an experienced clinician. I have worked successfully with a wide range of patients and keep a diverse practice because I highly value the experience of working with people from different backgrounds and lifestyles. My patient roster reflects this. Over the years I have collaborated with patients to help them gain mastery over issues ranging from anxiety to low self-image to addiction to relationships and many other issues as well. Younger and older patients of both genders and all sexual orientations have spent time in my office diligently working towards their goals.

When people enter psychotherapy they want to make changes and I take that striving very seriously. In this effort I feel it is vital to attune to the unique circumstances of each patient's life. We all come from a very specific set of circumstances and no two peoples past or present is the same. Therefore, therapy that neglects this reality will not deal with the individuality of each person and, I believe, is likely to unfortunately fail.

As a referred to above, my approach depends on the patient with whom I am working, but a belief I always hold is that people heal and change when they cultivate a healthy internal voice that can guide them through the challenges of their past, present, and future. Some very personal things are talked about in therapy and I feel it important that a patient feel safe to talk about such things. Therefore, a patient should talk about personal material only when they decide they are ready and that patient and therapist should work together to make the space safe for such conversations. It’s important to respect the boundaries each patient brings to this work.

I do not charge for the first session because I believe that the initial meeting is simply to determine if a second session should be set and I think it is fair to allow that initial choice to be made without financial obligation.

Perhaps we will speak. However, if not good luck to all in the search for change and healing.
