I am committed to not being your “typical” type of therapist because I have found most counseling and therapists to be relatively ineffective.  Because of my genuine desire to help people heal and improve their lives, I have gotten extensive training over the past 25 years in many modern therapeutic approaches.  Having improved and sharpened my skills, I commonly see quick, evident, and long-lasting improvement with the people I counsel.  I regularly get feedback that I am highly effective, warm, fun, and down to earth as a psychologist. As your therapist, I am committed to helping you make significant improvement and giving you the tools and support to create the life you desire.  For more information on my approaches to helping people, please click on the article link below:
WARNING: Therapy May Be Hazardous to Your Health 

personal statement

As your psychologist, I am committed to creating an environment where you will feel understood and safe in order to assist you in addressing and exploring the challenging issues that have kept you from living the life you would prefer. We will work together to help you identify answers to your problems, build on your strengths, and develop the skills you need to prosper in your life.  Although, challenging at times, it is my goal to make counseling a very positive, fun, and productive experience for you. 
Because of the uniqueness of people I will personalize my approach to be the one that is most effective for you. I will also work to find a healthy balance between challenge and support necessary in making the changes that will help you be happier and healthier.  
Please feel free to contact me me if you have any questions or would like more information to determine if I am the best therapist for you.  You can also read my article on How to Choose a Good Therapist by clicking here.  I would be happy to discuss your situation with you and how I believe that I may be able to help.
