For almost 30 years I have provided high quality short-term therapy at a reasonable fee. This has proven to be effective and time and cost efficient. My goal is to help clients achieve their goals, which frequently include resolving conflicts, increasing intimacy, reducing anxiety and depression, and improving self-esteem and communication skills.
My approach is eclectic, utilizing Cognitive/Behavorial Therapy as a foundation. I strongly believe the therapist is the catalyst by virtue of who he/she is as a person that enables clients to have the support and direction necessary to draw from within themselves,to attain their goals.
My style reflects my personality - low-key, warm, sensitive, humorous, and highly motivated. I encourage perspective clients to telephone to get a true sense of who I am, how I work, and what I do in order to be helpful.
