Practice Description:
To my clients past and present, and to all who are seeking help here today,
Please be advised that I offer sessions safely and securely via Zoom teleconferencing. It is incredibly easy to use Zoom. Personally, I find sessions to be relaxed, focused and productive using this app from the privacy of your own home, car, under your backyard tree, or wherever you feel most comfortable.

Are you depressed? Stressed at work? Upset over a failing relationship? Psychotherapy can help! It can help you achieve clarity, a renewed sense of hope, balance and purpose, in essence, become happier about you.

During the initial consultation, we'll identify your most pressing concerns and decide which to work on right away. We'll talk about your relationships, or lack of them. About what you want and need from the important people in your life. We'll examine the choices you're making to see if they help or hurt you; what causes you to make those choices, and whether you can change them or not.

After our first session, you will begin to see your life's story with new eyes, compassionate and uncritical eyes. And that softening begins the process of changing the way you live your life. I try to be compassionate and understanding so you won't feel judged; it is a serious responsibility to be trusted with your deepest concerns. Though I may make suggestions, ultimately, I believe you are the authority on your own life.

For marital therapy, I use a step by step process called Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. All couples suffer disappointments, most develop what we call negative or vicious cycles of fighting and disconnecting. We'll look at how you respond when your partner provokes you and how to get out exit these battles. The intense cycles end and thats when a new kind of conversation starts with listening, honest communication and intimacy. Please don't give up on your formerly loving relationship. Call today for a consultation.

I enjoy working with businessmen and women, engineers, writers and academics. My background in both the corporate world and the arts helps me understand the particular challenges you face. I also enjoy working with perplexed parents and twenty-somethings, having been both a perplexed parent and a very perplexed at times twenty-something.

If you have any questions, feel free to write via e-mail or telephone my office. I will respond within 24 hours.
