Practice Description:
Teletherapy sessions available.

I have expertise in working with alcoholism, addictions and recovery issues, as well as with relationship, couple, and family issues. I have worked in the field for over fifteen years. I work with adults and adolescents, in individual, couple, and family modalities. My approach is to meet you where you are, and to help you to move towards your goals, overcome obstacles, and achieve maximum growth. I use several therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and strengths-based techniques.

Therapy is a journey through which we find our authentic selves and become the best we can be. I believe that through therapy, profound and lasting positive change can occur. I am a doctor of psychology, as well as a licensed independent clinical social worker. I have spoken at international and national conferences, and on television, film, and radio about mental health treatment, addictions, and relationship issues. I have also served as a consultant for the U.S. Congress in substance abuse parity legislation. My bestselling books, "FROM ADDICTION TO RECOVERY," "PRACTICAL THERAPY," "LIVE AND LOVE EACH DAY," "HOW TO STAY TOGETHER", and "HOW TO HEAL EMOTIONAL TRAUMA" are available at Amazon.com.
