Trained in psychodynamic as well as cognitive behavioral therapy, I am eclectic in my approach. However, most of all, I am goal oriented and focused. I believe that every person is an individual with an individual comfort zone. I believe that it is crucial to understand the needs of the particular person that I am working with and I endeavor to meet these needs using the strategies that are most appropriate for that individual. I am trained and experienced using Biofeedback, Hypnotherapy, Meditation, Guided Imagery, Breathing, and Relaxation Training techniques. Over 30 years experience.

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

I have had great success helping people suffering from an array of physical conditions. Mind/Body strategies that I employ maintain health, reduce symptoms, and speed recovery. Specific issues and conditions include: weight loss, headaches, autoimmune conditions, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress related conditions, and ADD.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

My strategies help to balance the environment in the body. All systems are working in a congruent fashion, hormonal levels are balanced, the immune system is strengthened, and levels of inflammation (which lead to cancer and heart disease) are reduced. Cognitive behavioral strategies are employed to raise mood, lower levels of anxiety, and reduce stress. When the emotions are balanced and positive, the body functions in a healthy fashion.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

The mind and body are intrinsically connected. Using mind/body strategies regularly will reduce symptoms, speed recovery, and help to maintain good health, and a vibrant life.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

For me, it is life affirming and incredibly rewarding to help children, adults, and the elderly to recover from emotional and physical conditions that have stopped them from living a full and joyful life. There is nothing more rewarding then the hug and thanks that I often receive when treatment is completed and people leave my office with a feeling that their life is no longer on hold and they now can look forward to a future of growth and fulfillment.

My Role as a Therapist

I see myself as a teacher and a guide helping people to reach their goals physically, emotionally, and spiritually. At the same time, I am also a student. i see everyday as an opportunity to learn and grow. The people I work with are full of ideas, information, and unique ways of looking at the world. What I learn from them enhances my life. I greatly value the relationships that develop.
