My primary goal as a psychotherapist is to provide patients with a safe, supportive and growth-oriented environment in which they can learn to better face life's challenges, improve their relationships, and reach their full potential.

My style as a therapist tends to be more interactive and direct than neutral, and I work hard to help my patients progress toward their goals as quickly as possible. I believe that healing and growth takes place in the context of a strong therapeutic relationship, and I pay close attention to this aspect of my work.

I employ a variety of tools and techniques to help my patients attain their therapeutic goals, and actively tailor the treatment approach to suit the needs of my patients. I also emphasize treatment methods that are supported by the latest research findings, as appropriate.

With regard to specific technique, I most commonly operate from Object Relations and Cognitive-Behavioral perspectives. Don't worry, you are not expected to already know what these terms mean! Very simply put, I utilize these two approaches to 1) help you understand how you got to where you are, and 2) help you make desired changes.

More Info About My Practice

Like many professional services of which we need or choose to avail ourselves in life, therapy is not inexpensive. For this reason, I want my patients to know that I appreciate fully the great investment (of time, energy and money) they are making in working with me. I also want them to know that I am therefore committed to helping them reach their goals for change as quickly as possible. The good news is that the primary determinant of how quickly you get there will be your own motivation to do so. I'll work hard to provide the best tools and techniques available, but you will have to work much harder than me in order to get better. I would love for you to be ready right now, but will certainly understand if you are not. In that case, however, you may wish to wait until your hunger for change grows stronger before initiating treatment. I will most certainly talk with you about this in our very first meeting.

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

Although my broad training as a clinical psychologist has prepared me to effectively treat the full spectrum of psychological problems we face as human beings, I do have areas of specialization, and tend to "fit" best with some patients more than with others. To that point, I have a great deal of success in working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, and relationship problems, and I do particularly well with individuals who are highly motivated to make desired changes in their life NOW. I have the tools and techniques that can facilitate relatively rapid change in the conditions I have described, and they work best with patients who are ready to begin implementing them immediately. As the old joke goes, "How many shrinks does it take to change a light bulb? Only one, but the light bulb has to really want to change!"
