I believe that given the correct tools and a therapist skilled at teaching them, any client can overcome anxiety and depression. I have devoted more than 30 years to teaching patients with anxiety and depression that these are highly treatable conditions that they can conquer in a fairly short time with effective guidance. My patients tell me that I am warm and supportive, but persistent.
In couples counseling, I teach communication skills and relationship enhancement techniques.

More Info About My Practice

I also offer a free 15 minute telephone consult before scheduling appointments.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

After 30+ years of practice, I am still thrilled when individual patients learn the tools they need to conquer anxiety and/or depression, and couples learn how to communicate more effectively and enhance their relationship. I am passionate about my work because it gives me the opportunity to help individuals and couples make real, positive changes in their lives without prolonged, extensive therapy.

Groups I Work With

    Having conquered anxiety and depression myself, I especially enjoy treating those who suffer from panic attacks, fears, phobias, social anxiety and other anxiety issues and depression. Therapy is generally short term. I like to teach others the skills I have learned to deal with their issues and move on to a more enjoyable life.
    With couples, I focus on communication skills and relationship enhancement techniques.
