My Approach to Helping

I have worked with clients to deal with many different challenges for over 30 years. Overall I believe that each of us has the intrinsic ability to understand and resolve many of our own problems and challenges. I also believe that there are times when we feel "stuck" and need help moving forward. My goal has always been to help my clients better understand the source of their problems and by teaching skills and techniques to learn to overcome these challenges so that, eventually, they do not need me anymore.

I have also learned that no two people are alike and that the troubles we face are personal to us. So much so that we sometimes feel that no one else can understand how we feel. I understand that feeling and the hopelessness it may create in our lives. Helping people who feel hopeless and helpless is why I love what I do. I would love the opportunity to help you find the happiness you seek in life.

More Info About My Practice

I strive to offer many opportunities to seek therapy based on your schedule, not mine. I recognize that you live a busy life and need the flexibility that online therapy provides, at times that work for you. I also realize you don't have months or years to resolve the challenges you face.
I have found that most of my clients find solutions and relief in as few as 6 - 8 sessions. So what are you waiting for? Let's get started today!

How Psychotherapy Can Help

I firmly believe that a majority of people have the cognitive ability to resolve 99% of their problems and challenges. However, there are times and circumstances in our lives where we can get "stuck" in our own heads. Where we cannot find a solution to the problems we face on our own.
This is where a seasoned therapist can help... by offering insights and understanding to help move you from "stuck" to moving forward. Don't put it off any longer- get started moving forward today!
