ABOUT ME

I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 20 years and have worked in a variety of settings, listed below. My motto, “Empowering clients to achieve the change they desire” is both an indication of my belief about how to help clients, and a reflection of the feedback I get from them.

My style is direct and friendly, with the goal of helping people progress toward their desired life, always in the forefront.

I will adapt my style to fit your needs, addressing your concerns in a way that helps you feel more in control of your life.

In addition to formal teaching in the classroom, I have also conducted workshops on a variety of topics, including:

  • Maintaining professionalism with Difficult People

  • Helping children cope with divorce

  • The "Sandwich Generation" (coping with grown children and aging parents)
  • Self esteem development in children
