Psychological or physical difficulties can often cause unbearable emotional, mental and behavioral distress in our lives. In such circumstances it is normal to feel "stuck," hopeless, and alone. Additionally, those around us are frequently impacted by our condition, yet are unable to help.
At such times the assistance of a caring, trained professional can be invaluable in providing you with the resources and solutions you need to gain a healthy, fulfilling life. I am committed to working with you, using a wide range of rich therapeutic approaches, to resolve your suffering. Well-known for my results-based approach, I consider your time valuable, and avoid dwelling on nonessentials and aimless talking, focusing instead on developing actions and solutions you can apply immediately.
While skilled in the conventional therapies, my methods are creative and often nontraditional, drawing on ideas and approaches from many sources, including other cultures. However, the key to my effectiveness lies in my empathy, candor, optimism, intuition, and ability to develop a deeply supportive, nonjudgemental relationship with you. Be prepared to experience challenge, surprise, excitement, and success as we work together to meet your needs.
I work with a variety of problems, and specialize in treating trauma, anxiety disorders (including general anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobia, and panic attacks), chronic pain or illness management, loss and grief, habits, drug and/or alcohol abuse, individuals with both psychiatric and addiction problems, depression, relationship difficulties, and troubled healthcare professionals. As a military retiree spending the last few years of service providing therapy to all ranks and branches of the service, I am attuned to the unique needs of military, police, first-responders, and security personnel and their families. My practice also includes helping individuals to develop successful recovery programs (mental illness, addictions, or pain/illness), and assisting individuals to work on their spiritual and/or religious concerns.
I am knowledgeable in (and teach) psychopharmacology and welcome the opportunities to work in collaboration with the prescribing doctor, especially when side-effects, "residual symptoms," or adherence are of concern. I will involve significant others in the therapeutic process when appropriate, and use psychoeducation and homework. I also clinically supervise, train, and consult with other clinicians in the area.
To discuss your problem with me at length (no cost) and, if you decide to arrange an initial appointment, please contact me via my phone number or e-mail. If I do not respond immediately, I will contact you as quickly as I am able. All communications will be treated as confidential, and your privacy is my highest priority.
