It has been my privilege to provide psychotherapy for individuals and couples for over 40 years.
My therapeutic style is responsive because listening well is only the first step to building a strong therapeutic relationship. I offer empathic support, as well as helpful information, specific strategies and a clear treatment plan to guide our work together.
My approach is comprehensive because I draw on training in a wide range of specific methods, and because I believe the key to success in psychotherapy is for the therapist to be flexible and base treatment on your specific needs.
Our work is confidential because I do not participate in "managed care" contracts that require the release of progress notes or treatment plans to any third party. All details of your treatment are protected by the "psychotherapist - patient" privilege to the full extent covered by law and professional ethics.

A full range of services
I provide a full range of psychotherapy services including treatment for depression, panic attacks, and specific phobias such as speaking anxiety and flying phobia. I also provide anger and pain management.
Trauma recovery services
I specialize in the assessment and treatment of acute and chronic post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder and other anxiety disorders. For the last 25 years, I have used EMDR, one of the most efficient and effective research-supported treatments available. I am an EMDRIA Certified Clinician and an Approved Consultant in EMDR. I am a full member of several professional associations dedicated to the understanding and treatment of trauma including ITSSS, ISST-D and EMDRIA. Helping individuals and families recover from recent and long-standing traumatic experiences is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work.
