My Approach to Helping
I specialize in treating trauma, anxiety disorders (including general anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobia, and panic attacks), suicide, grieving survivors of suicide, sleep problems, chronic pain, drug and/or alcohol problems, and depression. I am committed to working with you to successfully resolve your problem using a wide range of rich therapeutic approaches. Well-known for my results-based approach, I consider your time valuable, and avoid dwelling on nonessentials and aimless talking, focusing instead on developing actions and solutions you can apply immediately. I am knowledgeable in (and teach) psychopharmacology and welcome the opportunities to work in collaboration with the prescribing doctor, especially when side-effects, "residual symptoms," or adherence are of concern. Significant others may be involved in the therapeutic process when appropriate.
