Individual Therapy

You can take charge of your personal growth. I will work with you to master your uncomfortable feelings and the challenges you face in your life. Often the seed for personal growth comes from a signal that something is wrong or you may experience repeated difficulties getting what you want from life. Psychotherapy can help you take the next step to improving your life.

Some believe psychotherapy is an art. And like creative art, the art of therapy requires continuous practice and study for the psychologist to master advanced skills. Yet, it is the heart of the therapist, that is, his personal warmth and concern for people that is the key to making therapy effective.

Psychotherapy is clearly based on clinical science, but is only effective when there is a positive working relationship between the two people involved – therapist and client. I welcome and encourage you to talk about the meaningful experiences of your life while I will deeply respect how difficult that might be at times.

I am a good listener, and over the years I have integrated a number of scientifically-based theories into how I think and work including psychoanalytic, family systems, cognitive behavioral, and emotionally focused therapy. I have been successful helping people with the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationships
  • Marital Problems
  • Work-related stress
  • Trauma
  • Grief/Loss
  • Performance anxiety
