For nearly thirty years, I have provided time-limited and in-depth psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and groups. I see people from late teens to people well into their 80s or 90s.
In my experience, I encounter people who are challenged by a number of experiences:
Some people just need some advice, problem resolution, or simply a different perspective. Some are caught up in certain beliefs and find themselves overwhelmed by emotions which impede their ability to make decisions and ultimately their success. Then there are those who may simply have gotten stuck repeating the same behaviors over and over, unable to move forward, while some are simply not able to find their own voice amidst all the pressures and expectations placed upon them. Other people find themselves stuck in unfulfilling or overly consuming careers, loveless or volatile relationships, seemingly endless family conflicts, or pain and suffering.
I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues which can be addressed in time-limited, goal-focused interventions, sometimes in as little as one session, or by a much more in-depth exploration, working through and ultimately, transformative experience through developing enduring patterns of managing one's life.
Treatment specialization includes:
- Therapy for Depression and Anxiety
- Couples Counseling
- Family Counseling
- Parenting Support
- Grief Counseling
- Work and Career issues
- Stress Management
- Addiction & Recovery
- Conflict Resolution
For the past twenty years, I have also devoted myself to the care of the elderly as a consultant to retirement homes and skilled nursing facilities. I have provided 1000's of evaluations, counseled and supported family members and caregivers of seniors and physically and mentally challenged individuals. I have also given my best effort to recommend ways to reduce or learn how to manage suffering, be it through guided imagery, mindfulness and relaxation, or medication or by providing psycho-education and helping people through the seemingly endless maze of geriatric care services.
