I'm skilled at working with couples, individuals, teenagers, and families. I offer a direct, empathetic style, and believe therapists should get clear feedback. I also think therapy should be a rewarding experience. I primarily rely on cognitive-behavioral therapy, but my approach is eclectic, and I tailor my style to suit each client's needs. I give my clients concrete, tangible tools and skills they can use immediately after each appointment. I specialize in anger and stress management for adolescents, adults, families, individuals, couples, employees, and HR managers. I also work with clients to help them navigate myriad other challenges, especially anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is really aimed at helping people solve problems they are unable to solve on their own. Truly what sets a trained professional from a "friend" is their education, experience and training to treat and view problems that a lay person would not be able to do.
