Welcome to my website. I am a licensed psychologist with years of experience offering counseling and psychotherapy. I have helped many, many people, who were struggling with the stresses or overwhelming problems life can often present, who needed hope and support, as well as those seeking therapy on a journey of deeper self-understanding. 

I believe in change, personal growth and healing, not in the stigmatizing labels and assembly-line, "medicate-them-and-out-the-door" policies of modern managed care or HMO practice. Psychotherapy must be non-judgmental. At its best, it should relieve us of the intolerable feelings or suffering that are our symptoms. It should provide hope for a better and freer life, and lower our burden of guilt and blame. This is true whether the problem is anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or relationship issues, like intimacy and couples communication.

Most likely, you have discovered this site while searching for help or answers for yourself or a loved one. I have helped individuals and couples from all walks of life, using a style of psychotherapy that emphasizes interpersonal interactions, dynamic insight, and cognitive change.
