Personal Statement

My clients seek competent,ethical, dependable psychological services in a warm, inviting environment. They enjoy a therapist who is active, collaborative, goal oriented with a sense of humor. My clients are individuals, couples and groups age 18 and above. Typical issues include problems with relationships (emotional & physical), self-esteem, performance enhancement/sport psychology, depression, anxiety, stress, life transition, trauma, PTSD, grief/loss (both human and pet) and women's health issues. I work especially well with the GLBTQ clients seeking positive living within their sexual orientation/lifestyle. My approach is toward positive, solution-focused psychology with an emphasis on dynamically-oriented psychotherapy.
