While I help clients with many types of problems, I have the most experience with those who are coping with depression, anxiety, or mood swings; and those who are struggling with grief or trauma. I also work well with people in recovery from various addictions, including substances and gambling, as well as with their family members, whether or not the addict has chosen to seek help. I do relationship counseling with couples (married or not, straight or gay), including pre-marital and sex therapy. I can help adults and children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or ADD) to provide support for parents, as well as behavior management skills for the person struggling to succeed in life with this diagnosis. If you are suffering from trauma or grief, I am trained to use a powerful tool called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which is documented to provide significant relief from troubling and painful symptoms.

Finally, where and when appropriate, I work closely with our staff psychiatrists (as well as your own, where indicated) to ensure an optimal outcome.
