Because it has become a challenge to schedule my current clients, I must cut back on accepting new ones.  I will be focusing on couples and those who want to do short term work on specific issues.


Do you want to work at the deepest level and get to the core of what is holding you back in life? Would you prefer to address your issues directly and powerfully, instead of having long discussions about your problems and history? Were you a little too smart for your last therapist? With a degree in mathematics and a prior career in data processing, I bring strong analytical skills to the practice of cognitive therapy. Plus I offer an open heart, a non-judgmental stance, and a sense of humor. Therapy should be a little scary and a lot of fun.

Let's also integrate the realms of consciousness, energy, body, and spirit. I have trained extensively in the most effective experiential and body-oriented modalities I could find: Holotropic Breathwork, Breath Therapy, Core Energetics, EMDR, hypnotherapy, and Internal Family Systems. I also bring a powerful and eclectic approach to working with couples. Other areas of post-graduate training include sex and marital therapy, solution-oriented therapy, transpersonal psychology, group and family therapy, treatment of anxiety disorders, working with anger and aggression, alternative approaches to depression, and therapy with incest survivors.

Whether you are coping with depression, anxiety, addictive behaviors, romantic and sexual issues, low self-esteem, problems with anger, or eating disorders, I can offer the skills, insights, and support needed to make your life journey easier and more rewarding. Having practiced meditation for over 30 years, and having trained with one of the founders of transpersonal psychology, I am comfortable with and enjoy working on spiritual and existential issues with my clients. Let's move beyond your symptoms and clarify your purpose for being alive!

If you have any questions at all, please call me or send me an email.
