If you show up and do the work there is no doubt in my mind you will be able to see changes in your life. These changes and achievements will vary from individual to individual as does the time it takes to see the difference in yourself - to be the NEW you. I incorporate my training in Psychodynamic (insight oriented) Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Anger Management into the work so as to best meet your needs. My focus is two-fold: to help you develop your ability to be mindful and to learn the skills to change your behavior. Those two factors will help you change the way you walk in the world and to have a more satisfying life.

More Info About My Practice
Please view my website for more information. I have a sliding scale for fees and once the deductible is paid will often accept insurance as partial payment for those with out-of-network benefits. I also offer an initial 30 minute consultation at no charge (for individuals). I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist (CAMS-2) and a Certified Domestic Violence Specialist (CDVS-1) through the National Anger Management Association.
Please note that effective September 2015 I will be on Sabbatical. This means that I will only be working with a few patients once a month in my office and at other times via Skype and FaceTime. If that works for you please call or email me for a consultation.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is about change. Changing your thoughts, reactions, interpretations of experiences and your behavior. Doing so requires the ability to be mindful in the present moment of your thoughts and feelings and also learning new skills to respond to whatever comes your way in life. With practice, you can actually change the structure and responses that occur in your brain. Current research has demonstrated the effectiveness of this two-pronged approach for lasting change.
