My work is a vocation, not a job. I love being a therapist because it allows me to connect with diverse people in a deep, meaningful way and to have the privilege of trying to help them on their unique journeys. I'm a diplomate in sex therapy as well as a licensed psychologist, and I am trained in EMDR, hypnotherapy,and two methods of couples counseling as well. I pride myself on keeping up with the most current developments in my field because I owe it to the people I'm trying to help.
My therapeutic style is supportive, active and direct. I work with the general public - individuals and couples with a wide range of issues, with sub-specialties in sexual dysfunction, trauma and with the LGBT population.
Many clients return to me over decades, bringing friends and family. Within the limits of the therapist-client relationship, I get genuinely attached to my clients, sharing in their pain and rejoicing in their successes...caring deeply. And I'm old enough to be a little bit....well...wiser.
