More Info About My Practice

I accept most insurance. If I am not a member of your network, then I will charge you a discounted rate and submit your insurance claim for you made out in such a way that any insurance reimbursement goes to you, not me.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In addition to helping couples communicate better, I help people who do not wish to participate in either 12-step programs or groups overcome compulsions, such as substance abuse, alcohol abuse, bulimia, sex addiction, and gambling.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Instead of "managing" anger, I help people overcome and understand it.
