Psychotherapy is a fun, engaging, and transformative process! As your therapist I will work closely with you to identify what is working in your life, as well as what is missing and what isn't working. We will identify your real, hidden and emergent dreams, and goals. I will hold you accountable to making the changes you desire real, and this will further assist you in becoming more of the person that you want to be. I have assisted countless individuals and couples in the process of self discovery, living your truth, and living an identity of your choice, not one ascribed to you.

My approach to psychotherapy is cognitive-behavioral. This therapy is a collaborative effort between therapist and client to solve the client’s problems and improve functioning. It is goal-directed and short-term. I work collaboratively with my clients to address current problematic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be interfering with daily life and relationships. I try to provide rapid relief from uncomfortable symptoms while also promoting long-term behavioral changes which maintain gains and prevent relapse. I help empower clients to become their own therapists rather than foster their dependency on me.

Many people think about starting psychotherapy for a long time before working up the courage to follow through. It is a scary thing to open up to a stranger about your deepest thoughts, fears, and insecurities; but it is also an incredibly brave thing to do! You have chosen to take a step towards improving your life and that takes effort and courage! It is always a privilege for me to help guide a client to a healthier and more balanced life. I'm not going to lie and say I can make you happy, I can't, but I can help you learn how to create your own happiness, and learn how to become your own therapist so that you can continue making positive changes long after our time together is over.

How long does therapy take? This is a question I am often asked and yet is so difficult to answer. So much depends on what you expect and want from their therapist. Some people want a to address a specific problem they are facing and others want and ongoing therapeutic relationship. Personally, I much prefer working with patients who are looking towards the longer term commitment. I love getting to know my patients and becoming the holder of their stories as I try to facilitate growth and change.

Panic Disorder and OCD have some specific and proven techniques that evidence shows works best. This type of therapy is called "cognitive-behavioral therapy." I have specialized in treating these disorders since 1988 and this is the type of therapy I use in doing so. You may have tried and failed in the past, but I encourage you to be hopeful about the future and your ability to be free again.

All of us have concerns and issues of a relational or psychological nature. Talking through these concerns in an objective, safe and nonjudgmental relationship of trust with a experienced therapist is what psychotherapy can offer you. Psychotherapy can help you think through life's perplexing problems as well as assist you in knowing yourself better allowing you to make clearer choices, improve important relationships and enhance the meaning and quality of your life. I have helped many people through my 32 years of practice to face, embrace and resolve their life's difficulties in an atmosphere of honesty, support and reassurance. Perhaps psychotherapy can do that for you as well.
