Welcome to my website. By browsing my site, I hope that you will come away with a sense of how I work, who I am and how therapy can be of help to you.


I have been a psychotherapist in private practice for over 30 years and work with adult as well as older adolescent individuals. My practice includes group therapy, couples therapy and marriage counseling. I specialize in a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, relationship and marriage problems. I have a particular interest in working with people who have concerns regarding individuation and separation, intimacy and problems of developing long-term relationships, parenting, sleep problems, creative blocks, empty nest syndrome, chronic pain and family and work conflicts.


Although the idea of starting therapy can be scary, it can also be exciting. Therapy is a process of self discovery which can help you create the life and relationships that really work. It is a process where I help you to talk and learn about your thoughts and feelings. As we address your anxiety, depression, confusion or other feelings, and focus on the issues you bring to therapy, our talks will affect the ways in which you relate to the world and the impact the world has on you.

For those of you who travel, have difficulty coming to appointments, or who live in areas where finding a suitable therapist is difficult, I offer telephone therapy. 

My clinical approach is not based on one particular theory. I don’t see what I do as “one size fits all.” As I get to know you, the theoretical approach or approaches I take will evolve from our work together.  I recognize and respect how different we all are.  This means I make a particular effort to work without judgment.
