Most people seek therapy because they find themselves recycling the same unhealthy life patterns that haven't worked in the past. For some, therapy helps in coping with a stressful issue or making a needed change, or simply to get a different perspective on an issue. Getting stuck, the constant recycling of unresolved issues, and living out unhealthy patterns, frequently lead to depression, anxiety, anger, alcohol use, chronic couple's issues, family conflicts, or deeper feelings of distress.
My best results typically occur with people genuinely interested in real change, growth and the transforming of their life. Whether we focus on a defiant teenager, or deep-seated anxiety, depression, grief and loss, couple's issues, anger, an addiction, or recent life stressors--real therapeutic change takes emotional energy, time, and work. Nonetheless, it may the best work you will have accomplished in your lifetime, which is why many see therapy as a journey of discovery, healing and transformation.
My hope is to be as human as possible--warm and comforting, easy to talk to, engaging, understanding, emotionally available, challenging, encouraging, and a bit witty at times.

Don't just set up the 1st appointment and walk in--get to know who you are about to develop a trusting, open and honest relationship with. I always invite a phone conversation so that you can ask questions and get a better sense whether or not we will work well together. After all, it's the relationship with your therapists that makes all the difference!
While it's easy to talk about one's professional background as a psychologist, my real and most important credentials are those of being a Dad, Step-Dad and Husband. It is these "credentials" that make the greatest difference to me as a therapist and to my clients.
