Throughout the 50 years I have been helping clients improve their lives, the resilience of the human spirit continually amazes me. I see therapy as a collaboration: my job is to listen carefully to the issues worrying /frustrating you and your job is to present your concerns to me. Together we will develop a working relationship with the goal of helping you overcome your problems and fears. Every person who comes into my practice is treated as a unique individual entitled to a satisfying life. It is my pleasure to join you on that journey.
