Achieve Personal Goals, Improve Intimate Relationships
Discuss your concerns with someone who understands
My practice is geared toward helping individuals overcome the barriers that prevent them from achieving their personal goals, and toward helping couples understand and meet each other's needs without compromising their own individuality. I do not have one approach to treatment that I apply in all cases, but rather I tailor my approach to the specific needs and personal styles of each individual or couple.

In working with couples, I have observed that many do not seek help until the relationship has deteriorated too badly to be improved. I caution couples not to wait too long before seeking help. I also encourage couples who are planning to marry to take the opportunity to discuss issues of possible concern with a counselor before they have committed themselves to a date.

In addition to having been in practice for more than 25 years, I have a strong personal connection to the world of the creative arts. This has given me a special understanding of the particular struggles that face individuals in this field.
