Focus of Practice & Interests

I am skilled at solution focused therapy, but real change often takes courage and trust. Most clients find I understand them quickly and that I'm interactive. The majority of my clients want to be unstuck, move beyond the anxiety, sadness, anger, communicate with their partners and be happy. They want insight and to feel better. Relief, healing, clarity, problem solving and finding one's authentic path are some of the goals and the results of this work. I have particular interest in the unconscious influences of one's difficulties.  

Background & Experience

Before becoming a private practitioner in 1990 I worked at Mt Sinai Hospital both inpatient and adolescent day treatment, Providence Hospital with children, adolescents and adults and as a family therapy consultant, Pacific Gateway Hospital as a case manager and Parry Center.  

Patient & Client Populations Served

Adolescents Adults
Families Couples

Orientation & Approach

I've been helping clients since 1982. I had a traditional Freudian psychoanalytic training on the east coast and for the past 15 years have been studying and working as a Jungian oriented therapist. I am always interested in dream work. My work with individuals, families and couples is active and involves sharing of my insights and impressions. I would call myself a Depth Therapist and am very interested in the Science of consciousness, spirituality and the work of Carl Jung. I have particular expertise with couples and adolescents and I am also a certified Gottman trainer for parents transitioning to parenting.
