I am a licensed clinical psychologist, who offers over forty years of professional experience to assist individuals, couples, and families learn ways to overcome difficult life situations. Working together with children, parents, teenagers, young and maturing adults of all ages, I create a safe and caring setting for the examination of troubling and troublesome behaviors, and the expression of worrisome thoughts and feelings. Using a problem solving approach which draws on the resources of both the client and the therapist, people adopt new ways of understanding, learn strategies to manage more effectively, develop new resources, become happier, and grow personally in the process.
Some of the perplexing issues which require my professional attention are: Developmental issues of young and school age children and teens. Parenting difficulties. Relationship issues. Life Transitions. Substance use, abuse, and addiction. Occupational difficulties. Gender and sexual orientation/identification issues. Men’s issues. Aging. Psychiatric conditions.
