Thank you for your interest in my practice.  Within this site you will find information regarding my background and clinical orientation that I hope you will find helpful.  While the majority of my work is with individuals and couples, I am trained in family therapy as well. 

When working with individuals, I have been most successful in helping:

  • People struggling with anxiety and depression, particularly anxiety associated with there sense of self and how they fit in the world.  This may include the anxiety associated with finding a sense of purpose through work and intimate relationships. 
  • Adults and adolescents who are questioning or coming to terms with their sexual orientation.
  • People in various stage of recovery from substance dependence or who are trying to regulate their emotional experience in self-defeating ways, including but not limited to sexually compulsive behavior.

When working with couples, I have been most successful when working with:

  • Couples caught in a negative communication cycle in which conflict never gets resolved.
  • Couples who have tried but not been able to resolve conflicts tied to money.
  • Couples figuring out their boundaries with one another when one partner struggles with addiction.
  • Young couples considering whether to conceive or who are transitioning to a family of three.
  • Relationship changes when one partner comes out as gay or lesbian.
  • Couples who are questioning their commitment to monogamy or are exploring an open relationship.
