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 to work toward having more satisfying relationships and more fulfilling lives.

I take a dual approach with helping people. The first aspect is helping you see how you got to this place. This insight can lead to greater self-acceptance and understanding. The second aspect includes helping you change 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 help you relieve depression and anxiety, as well as change long-standing patterns 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 couples counseling, I will help you with difficult issues such as growing apart, ongoing conflict, addictions, and betrayal.

If you're struggling with anxiety and panic attacks due to the coronavirus, please see my blog post below.
