I bring a diverse range of knowledge and experience to my work and my therapy

I was trained at Columbia University in the mid 80’s. Since that time I have gained extensive experience in both the public and private sector working with individuals and couples on a wide variety of issues.

Every therapist has specialties, areas we are drawn to intuitively and areas where we've had significant experience. I have been very interested in sorting through all the technical information coming out on psychology, therapy, and the brain.

I am finding that the new knowledge can give us a solid base of understanding so that we know what we are talking about when we describe the unconscious, or other basic concepts of psychology. I find if truly understood, it broadens our understanding and appreciation for the complexities of what we humans are. Finding a path to each person's balance happiness and self understanding means making a map for each person. Understanding the neuroscience sheds light on this endeavor, understanding the person, brings the science to light.

Added to this the understanding that the health of the brain can sometimes be the issue, and sometimes easily fixed, brings an important additional dimension - (what if the problem is truly not psychological?) to our considerations. Finding truly effective approaches in these areas remains a continuing passion.
