Announcement icon During the Coronavirus crisis, we are pleased to offer remote sessions that do not require you to visit our office.
With 43 years' experience and 9 years of postgraduate training, earned my Ph.D. in Psychology at Cornell University. I was trained in Marriage & Family Therapy at Nova, and I am Board Certified in Clinical Hypnotherapy. I always listen first for strengths and gifts you already possess. Then I help you to use those strengths to recover the inner peace, interpersonal confidence, and spiritual balance that you once enjoyed. I serve youths, adults, & couples (LGBTQ welcome). Remember how self-confidence feels? Just call. If you don't like your first hour, then it's completely free!
Marriage/Relationship counseling. I save relationships using your existing skills. Single clients come for relief from anxiety, unwanted fears & habits, and addictions. With hypnotherapy I empower people to quit smoking, lose weight, and let go of many other problems, anxieties, phobias, habits, IBS, chronic pain, and more, usually in just one session.
Every change is important. Even "baby steps" make huge differences. Therapy should not feel like work. You will find effective solutions in just weeks. I spend almost no time analyzing problems; and as much time as possible using your strengths to create enduring solutions. An hour spent creating solutions is better than 20 hours analyzing problems.
