My Approach to Helping

Whether you're depressed, anxious, or stressed, I'm here to help you to feel better and get better. Together we will create a safe, productive environment to achieve your goals and live the life you want to lead.

I changed careers over 25 years ago because I realized that I am passionate about helping people like yourself to work toward creating more satisfying relationships and a more fulfilling life.

To do so, I take a dual approach. The first is developing insight into how you got to this place. Insight can lead to greater self-acceptance and understanding. The second part includes changing your coping strategies. Unhelpful coping strategies such as avoidance, using drugs and alcohol, and obsessive thinking started out as being helpful... Until they weren't.

I will do my best to provide you with replacing your existing coping strategies with ones that are more helpful - whether it's at work, with your spouse, or with yourself.

More Info About My Practice

I'm currently providing Telehealth (Internet and phone). When I resume, I will be going back to my office, which is centrally located near Crescent Heights and Wilshire. My background includes providing psychotherapy in private practice and non-profit community centers. I have also supervised other therapists, written several articles and two books on relationships, taught psychology and counseling courses, and provided workshops for mental health clinicians and the general public.

My Role as a Therapist

As a therapist, my only interest is in assisting you to achieve your goals, as well as helping you change, mature, and grow.
I will do my best to help you to resolve feelings of depression and anxiety, as well as change long-standing patterns and vicious cycles, such as unwanted behavior and low self-esteem. I'm here to support you, encourage you, and occasionally challenge you in order to create new ways of thinking and behaving.

If you'd like to have couples counseling, I will also do my best to help you if you're struggling with difficult issues such as growing apart, ongoing conflict, addictions, and betrayal.
