My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 20 years' experience treating adults, adolescents, couples, and families. Trained in insight-oriented treatment, I primarily identify as a "systems" therapist who helps clients understand their behavior and emotions not only as individuals but in the context of their family and relationships. I have an interest and expertise in Cognitive-Behavioral approaches to health issues (insomnia in particular). I work with you to identify your concerns and goals and to develop and implement a plan for working together to address them.
My therapy style is direct and highly interactive. Even as we do the hard work of addressing serious issues, I generally approach individuals - and life - with a blend of warmth and good humor, and I try to bring those qualities to the therapeutic relationship.
