About

My sincere caring, sharp intellect, extensive training and many years of experience has enabled me to help individuals, couples and families suffering from problems of anxiety, depression, marital difficulties, career challenges, loss, relationship issues and trauma. In consideration of your problems, treatment will be tailored to your individual needs.

Gottman approach to couples therapy inform my practice. In couples counseling, the focus is on reestablishing safety, healthy communication and friendship. I guide partners to interrupt negative patterns of interaction and infuse their relationship with romance and play. Sessions are solution focused and emotional, after the first appointment you will walk away with a plan and idea of 'what to do'.

When working with individuals, I practice Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) which is the only psychotherapy that is scientifically supported by more than 30 years of research demonstrating its effectiveness. It is a time-limited, empirically supported treatment for a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, stress, worry, and relationship conflicts.
