More Info About My Practice

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

There is no better reward in life than that of helping others. Since I am an information junkie as well as an experienced therapist, I delight in bringing information to my patients and clients that, in addition to our psychotherapeutic work, helps them beome healthier and happier.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

This is a no-brainer. Clearly any serious issues that we have lived through and resolved--allowing us to come up from the ashes, so to speak--will make us wiser and stronger. Everything I've ever learned from experience or research has, at some point in therapy with certain patients, been of immense value--whether it be a death in the family or an applicable joke.
