It is my firm belief that people do their best with the situations life hands them. My goal as a therapist is to help people work through their stuck places, let go of old behaviors that helped them survive in the past but are no longer useful, and learn new behaviors that will contribute to greater enjoyment and connection in their lives. I see myself as an active guide in this process, and I am enriched by seeing people learn to accept themselves and others, and thus live the fullest and most satisfying life possible.
I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been in private practice since 1981. I have extensive experience in family systems, cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapies. My clients include adolescent girls, adult men and women, and couples and families.
I am comfortable working in a solution-focused, brief treatment model for specific issues, and I also enjoy working longer-term with clients regarding family of origin or other more complex issues.
