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
limitations.

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

"
CONVERSATIONS FROM THE COUCH".I hope you will find
these interesting and educational. WELCOME TO MY
