I am a licensed psychologist with years of experience offering counseling, psychotherapy and psychological evaluations. I have helped many, many people who were struggling with the stresses and overwhelming problems life can often present, who needed hope and support, as well as those seeking therapy on a journey of deeper self-understanding. Intimacy in relationships is one of life's most significant challenges. I have worked to help people overcome their defensiveness, to find the closeness they want with the ones they love.
I have a specialty in the mind-body connection, especially in the treatment of panic, eating disorders and female sexuality. I offer respectful, straightforward therapy to help people change their lives, using proven, effective approaches of dynamic, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT).
Most likely you have discovered this site while searching for help or answers for yourself or a loved one. I have worked with people from all walks of life. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental healing relationship and the skills to help people transform their lives.
