My Approach to Helping

Please check in at my website to read more about my approach with couples and individuals. I have over 25 years of experience and feel comfortable in making people feel supported so that the process of therapy feels like a real evolution for the person.

I supervise and teach and understand how to deepen the work so that you go forward and not in circles and that real change is possible.

I do general therapy but also sexuality and couples work including all intimacy issues and work with multi-cultural themes and all backgrounds and ages.
It is a collaborative and transformative experience if that is what is needed. I also do short-term work and issues related to dating.

More Info About My Practice

I am available to give a free phone consultation to answer initial questions. Also, I am flexible in terms of fees if that is an issue.

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

I am very experienced in working with sexual issues, dysfunctions either in with an individual or with a couple. People feel they can understand their underlying conflicts more clearly and ultimately, I believe that therapy is about the person being able to be happier in their own lives in their day to day and in the achievement of their goals and longings. I am particulary adept at getting to blocks that may be unclear to the person and may be stopping the flow of love and positive choices.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

It allows people to become more free and less afraid to activate and be their own true selves. It allows them to feel supported in identifying their real feelings without the need for acting out to hurt others or acting negatively towards themselves. I have a very positive approach enlisting the person\\\'s curiosity in helping them define the uniqueness of their very own narrative.
