My Approach to Helping

I take an holistic approach, examining the here-and-now reality of the person's experiential, physical, interpersonal, and intra-psychic worlds, optimizing function and reducing strain. I believe in having the knowledge and networking developed to as best I can see that medical problems are addressed by skillful colleagues and that I can then help clients address psychological issues, including nutritional, exercise-related, and sleep-related problems, as well as other problems due to overunderarousal of areas of the central nervous system. I strive to help people learn about themselves, especially how patterns of feeling, anxiety, and defenses affect the quality of their lives and may be addressed by mindful choices promoting healthy changes for themselves and others around them.

More Info About My Practice

Fee is $205 per hour, paid in cash at end of each session. I provide receipts for insurance filing by clients when requested. I ask clients to allow me to videotape sessions as this is vital to providing the best possible care, to my growth as a therapist, and to sometimes provide very important feedback to clients -- veridical, "that's me doing that", information. (Videotape doesn't lie and helps us achieve greater observing capacity, facilitating mindful change.)

* shifting implicit unconscious learned interpersonal procedures (how we deal with others)
* rapidly reducing anxiety
