Premier Psychotherapist
I respect each person as an individual and as the expert of their own life. I help individuals form therapeutic and life goals and act as a support in achieving those goals. I respect each person as an equal, rather than taking on the more traditional "pseudo-authoritarian" therapist role. I am more than happy to work with a variety of different people. Whereas I do specialize in treating anxiety disorders such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, personality disorders, namely Dependent, Narcissistic, and Antisocial personality disorders, I also specialize in working with police officers and other emergency personnel, as well as the LBGT communities, particularly the trans* community. Other treatment issues that I may be able to assist with include hoarding, internet/computer/gaming addictions, sex addiction, and agoraphobia.
Please contact me for more information.
