My Approach to Helping

I have over 25 years' experience helping adults solve personal and work-related problems, break habits and addictions, and find clarity, self-acceptance, and peace. My clinical style is supportive and present-focused, incorporating psychodynamic theory, cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness practices, and scientific research. Clients generally find me to be kind, thoughtful, and non-judgmental. I have a sense of humor, and believe in the healing power of laughter (as well as tears). I respect my clients' personal values, religious beliefs, and personality styles, and have worked with people from all walks of life. I view counseling as a process of guiding people toward greater resiliency, self-awareness, and overall well-being.

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

Are you concerned about your drinking, drug use, or other potentially addictive behavior, but feel traditional 12-step or rehab programs are not for you? I offer a personalized behavioral assessment, and together we'll develop an integrative treatment plan, tailored to your needs and finances, with the primary goal to change your thinking about (and your relationship to) alcohol, drugs, or whatever the object of your addictive behavior may be.

I also teach mindfulness classes and offer mindfulness-based groups for preventing relapses in addiction or depression. You can find information about these on my website. My personal experience with meditation as well as my training in mindfulness-based interventions informs my work with all of my clients.
