"My work is with adults, young adults and adolescents. Being unhappy, depressed or anxious arises from being stuck in patterns that stifle growth, inhibit change and increase stress. I help clients move toward positively addressing these patterns and obstacles.I specialize in treating stress, depression, healthy lifestyle management (insomnia, diabetes), men’s issues (anger, infidelity, alcohol), occupational and relationship problems. Additionally, I work with individuals experiencing, grief, major losses, sadness, feeling anxious or defeated. My experience includes working with emerging adults struggling with relationships, dating and loneliness; the stress of young professionals, medical students/residents and graduate students."
"During our initial meeting and evaluation, I will work collaboratively with you to identify your primary concerns and problems you are experiencing. We will also explore your personal strengths. I will assist you to understand any negative patterns that may be inhibiting your growth and reduction of stress and pain. Increasing your self-awareness and helping discover ways to change patterns leads to healing and a more fulfilling life."
