Although I work primarily with adults, I will consider counseling for a middle or late teenager. 

Some of the many issues that I have addressed with clients in therapy are:

For individuals - stress, depression, feelings of dissatisfaction, anxiety, test anxiety, decisions regarding relationships, career counseling, conflict with family, coping with chronic illness, pain management, anger, grief, loneliness, cross-cultural difficulties.

For Couples - communication problems, affairs, in-law issues, fertility problems, finances, coping with illness, constant fighting, separation and divorce.

For Families - conflict with children or teens, worries about a child's development or school performance, children caught in the middle of divorced parents, sadness, issues related to illness, behavior problems, and parenting.

Issues I most often address with clients include:

  • Depression

  • General and social anxiety

  • Panic Disorders

  • Test Anxiety

  • Pain Management

  • Dating and Relationships

  • Grief and loss

  • Life transitions (new job, move, divorce/breakup, etc.)

  • Cross-Cultural Difficulties​

  • Trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

  • Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)

Treatment Approach

To help achieve emotional tranquility and peace of mind I utilize various approaches and perspectives when working with clients in therapy. Though I use a Client Centered and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) the majority of the time, I may integrate other techniques and tools such as Neurofeedback and EMDR as a method of therapy. 

I have specialized training in Neurofeedback (, EMDR (, and Couples Communication Skills (,

I believe that all human beings have the potential to live productive lives. Unfortunately some may feel that happiness and self actualization is beyond their control. My role is to provide a trusting, nonjudgmental environment that will facilitate the process of reorganization of each individual's perceptions and transformation to a new sense of self. I conduct therapy that gives clients a safe relationship in which to explore their inner world and to consider taking risks in their external one.
