During this difficult time, you may be experiencing additional stress from illness, the changes in our community, financial worries, or challenges in your living situation. I am increasing my work hours to help with the unique problems this crisis is and will be creating. I am available for online meetings, and I have a secure, HIPAA-compliant website ready for video sessions, or “telemedicine.” Insurance will typically reimburse for this service.
Thanks for visiting my website. It’s not easy to seek counseling, and I appreciate the big step you’ve taken. I’m here to help if I can.
I enjoy working with many challenging issues, and appreciate the differences in working with women, men, and older adolescents. Each client is special and deserves not only my full attention, but also a treatment plan that is specifically tailored to their needs.
Blending cognitive-behavioral and psychodymamic approaches, I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. I encourage people to build on their strengths, as they identify and achieve their own goals.
As a practical, interactive therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and useful feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity, compassion, and a little humor, I work with people to find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. I may suggest homework, promote the use of relaxation skills, or refer to outside resources when appropriate.
