The potential for positive change in almost every individual is
phenomenal! I believe the key to successful therapy is to work
with a therapist who is empathic, supportive, non-judgmental,
encouraging and realistic. I want you to trust that I am a
therapist who strives to emulate these values and who will
put your needs, as a client, first! Other important therapist
ingredients include patience, knowledge, skills, experience
and insight required in sorting out the complex issues and
problems of modern day life. As a therapist, I strive to prepare
myself to meet these important standards as well. I believe it
is important to accept clients unconditionally regardless of
their backgrounds and personal characteristics and

I strive to get clients to ACCEPT THEMSELVES, shamelessly,
in spite of their imperfections! This, I find, enormously
empowers clients to solve problems and realize their full
potentials. I have done Cognitive-Behavior Therapy and
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), since 1978, as a
Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist. I have
come to the conclusion that most clients present with
problems that are triggered by some type of conflict in their
relationships with others. My mission as a therapist is to help
you to better understand how to change unwanted crippling
emotional reactions and behaviors that interfere with your life
goals and personal happiness. I invite you to work together,
with me, to explore ways to best achieve these ends.  I have
written about common problems that clients often present
with in therapy as well as some approaches to resolving these
issues and problems in the section entitled

these interesting and educational. WELCOME TO MY
