I am a warm, caring therapist with a sense of humor and extensive experience in private practice. I specialize in helping people with problems resulting from anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties at work, in couples and in families. I focus on helping people by seeing the world through their eyes. I have helped adults, adolescents and couples overcome their problems for more than 40 years in individual therapy, couples counseling and family therapy.
