WHAT'S IT LIKE TO WORK WITH ME?

Your experience of therapy will be as practical and “user-friendly” as possible, so that you’re always clear about how we see the problem and how and why we’re making changes. We want to help you feel better as soon as possible, and stay that way.

If you’re struggling with a life transition or troubled by unhelpful patterns that keep cropping up, my specialty in cognitive behavioral therapy may be helpful for you. I also specialize in working with substance use issues in an alternative to the 12-step approachcouples counseling to help you and your partner communicate and resolve conflicts more effectively; treating trauma to keep painful experiences from your past from overwhelming you; and Internet/online issues so that your online interactions can be healthy and fulfilling.
