I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY. 24354) with over eighteen years of clinical and teaching experience. My practice includes psychotherapy for adults and adolescents, couples counseling, and forensic (diagnostic) evaluations.
Psychotherapy works! More than 85% of people report major improvements in their mood, thinking and relationships after working with a skilled compassionate therapist for a short time. Whether the aim is to reduce the impact of a specific problem (make something negative go away), or develop your emotional and mental capacities (become more skillful with your emotions and relationships), focused psychotherapy can be of great help. My approach is grounded in the belief that people can make lasting changes; that you can resolve destructive patterns of experience and behavior, develop emotional intelligence, and create more satisfying and supportive relationships.
My style is direct, warm and thoughtful.
• I am focused on helping clients build on their strengths; and on developing the needed skill set to resolve problematic emotional states and interactions with other people.
• I help create a comfortable and safe environment where vulnerable issues can be elaborated and resolved in the context of an accepting relationship where you come to feel understood.
• This website offers more detailed information about my approach. I hope it will help you make an informed decision about choosing a therapist.
