My goal is to assist you create the life you seek. My style as a clinician is relaxed, and our sessions should be a positive interaction, even if we are discussing difficult issues. Whether a therapist or a coach, my sessions tend to have more of a feeling of two people relaxing in my living room and having a conversation about whatever is on your mind. It's my job to make you comfortable and safe so that we can resolve the issues that have brought you. Instead of sitting back quietly, I engage with you to create movement and change towards the positive outcome you want.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Although I enjoy an eclectic practice, I have a particular expertise in working with Anxiety Disorders, as well as issues related to adults living with Aspergers/Autism spectrum Disorders and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Over the last 20 years, much of my clinical work has focused on these areas. Additionally, in 2007, I was the About.com guide to BPD (bpd.about.com).
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Second only to choosing a licensed professional, the most important factor is choosing someone that you connect with. A strong positive personal connection with your therapist significantly increases the likelihood of that therapy will be a positive experience.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
No one is immune to personal struggles or difficulties, not even therapists. I believe that the most effective therapists are those who can look at themselves and admit that they are fallible, and like their clients have unique strengths and vulnerabilities. Recognizing ourselves this way increases our ability to connect with and learn from our clients - increasing the likelihood that we will be effective therapists.
