I am a licensed clinical Psychologist with over 35 years of experience as a Psychotherapist.  My primary areas of
expertise are anxiety, depression, PTSD and relationship enhancement.  My Psychotherapy is designed to alleviate
these by making sense of your history and to understand how you are in  the "here and now."  Many refer to this
as "Healing Talk Therapy."  My background centers on experience, meaning, emotional reactions,
 
I have experience in many therapy modalties as well as exposure to multiple Spiritual philosophies.  Dreamwork
could easily be a centerpiece of this work.
 
We would begin by getting to know you through sharing your history and understanding how your experiences have shaped your personality via your emotional reactions.  It is important for your feelings and thinking to align, or you
will experience discomfort.  So in alleviating your symptoms, we would aim for your feelings to align
with your thinking.
 
In relationship counseling, we would understand what each of you want, what you are missing, and the history of each of you that brings you into contact with your partner.  We would discuss things like communication, feeling interactions, financial concerns, hopes and dreams, etc.
