My Approach to Helping

It seems like you’ve always felt depressed and you always will be. You’ve always had anxiety and will just have to deal with it. Your parents had anger issues and, so of course, you do too. Problems in childhood are just too deep to resolve so you’ll just have to live with it. You’ve always had a hard time being social and you’ll just have to accept it. No matter how successful you are in many areas of life you can’t help feeling empty and unfulfilled.

I work with highly successful men and women using a unique method of countering self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors that results in self-doubt, insecurity, imposter syndrome, and interpersonal difficulties. I am so passionate about this work that I published a book “A Higher Purpose: How to increase satisfaction and meaning in your life” on Amazon to spread these ideas. I too understand the frustration, doubt and feelings of personal failure that so many successful people experience.

I wasted so many good and productive years due to self-doubt and insecurity. Fortunately, I have worked through all my struggles and developed a practice built around helping people overcome internal obstacles to happiness, fulfillment and life satisfaction. Don’t waste another day just settling for what you have. Don’t live one more day of regret or unfulfilled promises. Call today and allow me to address the deep struggles and insecurities that may lie within you and help you reach your full potential.

More Info About My Practice

My entire adult life has been spent helping people in a variety of ways from crisis counseling to divorce mediation. Prior to starting my private practice, I worked as an Assistant Director of a mental health clinic. I also have experience working as a lawyer and mediator. As a result, I am very aware of the stresses that professionals deal with on a daily basis and enjoy working in areas of career and interpersonal satisfaction. In addition, Having worked as a high school teacher and special education coordinator, I have experience in issues that student's and young adults struggle with including school problems and relationship issues.

You have lived “a life of quiet desperation” long enough. Now is the time to commit to making a change once and for all. If not now, then when? Imagine all you can achieve when your whole outlook about life and yourself changes. Call for a free consultation to see if we can create an individual action plan for you.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Busy professionals struggling to find happiness, balance and life-satisfaction despite being extremely successful.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy helps people identify blocks and obstacles to happiness and success. People are able to learn new ways of thinking about their challenges and then come up with alternate ways of responding. Changing how a person's thinks about problems, developing new behaviors and gaining valuable insight are all important in making lasting change.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love the ability to make authentic and genuine connections with people and to help them achieve their goals and dreams. It is an honor to be able to share in a person's life and to be granted the privilege of helping them grow and develop into the person they want to be. There is nothing more satisfying than helping a person to help themselves.
