I believe it is important to focus on your agenda for change. We work together to identify what is needed to make the changes that you want to make. My approach to therapy is active — both in identifying areas you want to change and developing tools or skills to make those changes. To me, therapy is a setting where we learn to do things differently and/or view things differently. I do not believe in a one size fits all approach. In my 30 years of practice I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of people with varied issues and have learned a lot myself from each of them.
I am very experienced and interested in the following areas:
- Relationship Issues
- Anxiety (Panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder)
- Low Self Esteem
- Life Transitions
- Stress Management
- Meditation and Mindfulness Training
- Differential Diagnosis of Complex Cases. I am open to novel or unique issues that do not easily fit into typical categories. .
