My Approach to Helping
Telehealth is being offered during the coronavirus outbreak on a secure video platform.
Your comfort and success is so important to me. From the start I will want to make sure to you are comfortable with me and that we work well together. There are often several ways to help a person. I collaborate closely with you, to offer you help in a way that works best for you. Your thoughts and feedback are so important to the process.
Over the past 30 years I’ve been trained in numerous approaches. I work hard to stay current with important advances in the field and what research tells us is most effective. Although I present a lot of information about couples therapy on my website, I have also practiced individual therapy for over three decades and I am skilled at issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, grief, etc.
More Info About My Practice
There are several things that set apart my practice:
1. I am a couples therapy specialist (other specialties are mood disorders, chemical dependency, chronic pain, executive coaching).

Specific Issue(s) I’m Skilled at Helping With

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
The most common complaints I have heard from people over the years regarding negative therapy experiences with previous therapists are that the therapy seemed to have no goals, tools were never offered, the therapist didn’t provide enough feedback and talk enough, and the therapy went on too long without progress.
My approach is to be sure to set goals clearly with people, and to keep reviewing the goals and progress periodically. I offer tools and encouragement to practice those tools between sessions. My style is an active contributor, offering guidance, feedback, etc. My practice is filled with both short and long term clients, no one size fits all.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Choosing a therapist involves three important steps. First, reading my profile and website and watching my videos. Then we can have a discussion on the telephone. And, if you feel good about our phone call, we can set an initial session to see how the fit feels to you and me. Finding a good fit is really important. It’s worth your time.
