Do you feel hopelessly stuck, alienated, lost, confused, self -conscious, anxious, or weird? My specialty is working with people who are searching for meaningful connections but instead have all but given up hope that they can be successfully treated. My aim is to help you answer the biggest questions of your life: who am I, what do I really want, and how best to achieve my aims and enjoy them. In this connection I will be your guide in a collaborative trip into your inner space enabling you to connect with your personal creative process. I provide a non-judgmental atmosphere that can help you get to the source of your problems. This will enable you to feel more grounded, empowered, freer, spontaneous and purposeful. You will also learn how to unlock, connect with, and be able to use your creative talents and powers. I also work with people who I refer to as synchronistically challenged incorporating my own original grounded 'spirituality' into my practice.

More Info About My Practice

My fee ranges from $180 - $190 per 45 minute sessions. I accept most insurance policies provided they are out of network. The first consultation is free to see if we can make a good match.

There are only three rules in the way I conduct therapy:

(1) an agreed upon fee

(2) agreed upon time(s) we meet

(3) be natural - saying anything that is on the tip of your mind without censoring and if you simply can't be free to be spontaneous then be willing to discuss why it feels impossible to do so.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

On Significant Psychological Change

The formula for changing is easy to describe; however doing so is very difficult. One changes by changing. To change means that you have to risk changing from something familiar to something unfamiliar. To change always is met with intial resistance usually in the form of anxiety. So it takes hard work and courage to face ones'fears. Psychoanalysis, often referred to as the talking cure is aptly named, because much of the process is directed to having the patient say that which is felt or acted out. Thus, the operational definition of the talking cure equals making the unconscious conscious.

The primary resistance to change is repetition compulsion, the need to repeat the familiar. Implied is a fear of the novel and the unknown.

Significant psychological change necessarily involves struggling with struggle. Change is often experienced like Gulliver cutting the ties that bind him to the ground in Lilliput. Change is often experienced like freeing oneself from a self-imposed prison cell. Spinoza's words are instructive: "Anything worth accomplishing is as difficult as it is rare."
