Many people, like those I work with, feel that because of experiences in their past, they are not able to live as fully and happily as they wish. Often, putting life experiences and emotions into words, with the help and support of an interested, concerned therapist, is the first step towards becoming free to live fully. In psychotherapy, each person sets their own pace, but newer, effective approaches enable most people to reach their therapeutic goals more quickly than they could with older methods.
As a board-certified clinical psychologist with more than twenty years' successful experience providing psychotherapy, coaching, and consultation, I work within a mentor/ counselor model, using my experience and expertise to provide knowledge as well as support to clients.
Clients I have worked with have been pleased with my focus on their strengths and my interactive approach. They express awareness of my deep and sincere wish for them to live satisfying and meaningful lives. I work extensively with US born and immigrant individuals and families, including survivors of trauma.
