       Perhaps you want to expand your life, have richer and less problematic relationships, do work that is more gratifying and more engaging of your creativity. In short, you want a better life, and it's begun to feel as if time is passing you by.

      In therapy, you and I will work together so you may develop the courage to stand behind yourself, while also enjoying intimate relationships.

      We will find ways of listening to your deepest voice. The goal is to help you gain inner freedom--the freedom to be yourself, to love genuinely, and to do your best work.

Incessant self-questioning and self-doubt can be exhausting.

Therapy can help.

  • A lifetime of experience, as well as intensive training, allows me to help my patients get underneath the things they know about themselves to find truth and self acceptance.
  • They become stronger,
  • better able to cope with the challenges they face, and
  • better able to express their innermost desires and talents.

We will work together to help yhou develop the courage to stand behind your intelligence and creativity, while also enjoying intimate relationships in which you are able to feel loving and vulnerable.

In therapy we can discover solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. 

  

A safe environment is of primary importance. My office provides an atmosphere of warmth and calm. Drawing from both new and traditional approaches to psychotherapy I use a variety of styles and techniques, offering what I think will be most helpful to a particular individual. Among the difficulties I treat are anxiety and panic disorders, depression, relationships issues, work and career issues, and marital and parenting issues. I also treat trauma.
