Psychotherapy is both art and science. I am a very experienced psychologist, with many years of treating clients, training and advising other mental health professionals, and directing counseling services at universities. I bring caring, savvy, and dedication to my work.
Psychotherapy is often very effective in helping people to reduce symptoms and stress, increase coping, develop more understanding of themselves, and create more satisfying lives. I help people with their relationships, family issues, work and school concerns, loss, adjustment to change, self- esteem, depression, acculturation, and other challenges.
I practice from a "biopsychosocial" perspective, including understanding cultural context. I have worked with clients from more than 35 countries as well as Deaf and other hearing-impaired individuals. For more information about my practice, please visit my website:
