My Approach to Helping

Whether you are dealing with aging, addictions, depression or serious losses in your life I will offer you honest straight-forward feedback and guidance.
You have a right to expect thoughtful and compassionate responses to whatever troubling life situations and emotional turmoil you might bring to our initial sessions. My years of experience and advanced training allows me to offer you that in a natural way. My approach is to listen carefully, help you sort out what's important to you and offer ways to overcome obstacles to that. We will spend several sessions at first in order to make sense of what's going on before proceeding to offer actions and directions for us to explore.

More Info About My Practice

I have had extensive training in depth psychology (contemporary psychoanalysis), psycho-spiritual disciplines (meditational practices) which help me not only listen and hear wishes and frustrations but the potentials for growth and healing which is what will move us forward. Please visit my website at for a more complete account of my training and experience.

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

Many people who come to me have a mix of recurring substance use problems, relationship conflicts, and concerns about loss of motivation and drive. I am particularly skilled at sorting out not only the addiction issues but also at understanding underlying roots of other distresses which need to be addressed. Surprisingly, our initial evaluation of your situation is usually done in a relatively short period of time. Then, of course, the longer term work begins. I'm told that I am an excellent companion and guide on that journey.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

I think that the first and most important question you can ask yourself if your potential therapist is a " fit" for you and what you may be seeking. You can usually detect this in your first communications with him or her. You might also ask yourself how responsive and knowledgeable regarding your primary concerns does shehe seem? Do you find yourself saying things you haven't said before, perhaps even to yourself? Do they seem to "get" you.
Of course, practical things matter also. Since you are about to build a relationship of trust, how easy is it to talk about your financial and scheduling needs? Are you treated like another insurance claimant, or does the therapist help you make informed decisions about how you will afford to work together. Finally, feel free to interview several people. Don't rush into grabbing the cheapest and quickest therapist you can find.
