Practice Description: Having helped many men and women during my 30+ years of experience, I am honored that people come to share their personal stories with me, and am fascinated by the many ways in which their lives unfold. As I learn more about your history and unique experiences, I understand how and why you suffer today. I believe that good therapy should accomplish three things. First, therapy should help to ease your emotional burdens and provide some relief from feeling alone. Second, good therapy should also teach you how and why you are vulnerable to the challenges of life. And third, therapy should make you more aware of your personal psychological landscape, thereby allowing you to achieve more fulfilling relationships and a more satisfying life. Generally, people who receive therapy are better able to gain control over their lives, and are more confident about their future. And with greater control over your life and increased confidence about the future, you are better able to live your life with love and optimism.

As a relationship specialist, I've helped people of all ages and at all stages of a relationship; single, married, divorced, friends, lovers, and the "I don't know what I am." I know how to help you improve whatever relationship has caused you difficulty, including the one you have with yourself.

As much as I enjoy and take my work seriously, I also include a bit of humor in my approach to working with others, as I believe it is essential for surviving and thriving in today's world.

The important thing is to talk to a professional who can help you. Don't let fear or shame get in the way of seeking the help that will change your life and make you a happier person. When you are deciding on a therapist, look for someone with years of experience, compassion and understanding, and who makes you feel safe…someone you can trust. Hey…that’s me!! And did I mention that a good sense of humor can do wonders.

Give me a call and let's talk about it. You've got nothing to lose.

Additional Comments: In my private practice as a Clinical and Family Psychologist, I see children, adolescents, and adults. And I have extensive experience providing individual, couples and family therapy.

Among the many reasons people come to me for therapy, the following are the most common:

DEPRESSION due to low self-esteem, relationship problems, aging, illness, employment
stress, a painful family history, or difficulties coping with the demands of life.

ANXIETY and NERVOUSNESS due to fear of the future, fear of the unknown,
fear of failure, fear of not having control over your life, and fear of losing love.

PARENTING PROBLEMS due to guilt, overindulgence, fear of rejection,
difficulty providing discipline or setting limits, and lack of confidence about what
a parent's job should be.

RELATIONSHIP STRUGGLES due to inability to communicate effectively,
conflicting personalities, not having your physical and emotional needs met, a lack of
trust and intimacy, and not knowing how best to show love and caring.

IDENTITY CONFUSION due to expectations of family and friends, not knowing
what makes you happy and how to achieve it, difficulty in deciding on a career or
school path, not knowing who you are, what you stand for, or how to find
meaning and satisfaction in life.
