I provide short and long-term psychotherapy to adult individuals and couples experiencing difficulties such as:

  • anxiety, phobias, and panic attacks
  • depression and grief
  • victimization, abuse, and trauma
  • management of anger and other emotions
  • stress management
  • pain management
  • coping with medical problems and disabilities
  • marital and other relationship problems
  • sexual problems
  • codependency and issues of adult children of dysfunctional families
  • alcoholism, chemical dependency, and substance abuse problems
  • eating disorders
  • gambling problems
  • nightmares
  • excessive shame and guilt
  • obsessions, compulsions, and OCD
  • dissociative disorders

I have had post-doctoral training in the treatment of the above issues, and have trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches. Among the traditional or empirically validated methods I have trained in are:

  • Rational Emotive/Cognitive behavior Therapy
  • Psychodynamic Therapy
  • Family/Marital/Relationship Therapy
  • Clinical Hypnosis
  • Guided Imagery
  • Gestalt Therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

On occasion, I also use innovative, non-traditional, or experimental approaches when called for, although they are generally not covered by insurance. These may include:

  • Thought Field Therapy
  • Emotional Freedom Therapy
  • Tapas Acupuncture Technique
  • Energy Diagnostic and Treatment Methods
  • Advanced Integrative Therapy (Seemorg MatrixWork)
