                In my private practice as a Clinical and Family Psychologist, I work 
                with children 6-12 years of age, adolescents, adults, and seniors.  
                And I have a great deal of experience providing individual psychotherapy, 
                couples counseling, and family therapy.  I am fortunate to be able to 
                do work that I love, and look forward to helping people for many years.


                People come to me for therapy for many reasons.  As a skilled therapist,
                I have helped many people with the following:

                - due to low self esteem                                  
                    -  relationship problems
                    -  concerns about aging
                    -  employment stress
                    -  a painful family history
                    -  difficulty coping with the demands of life
               ANXIETY and NERVOUSNESS 
                    -  due to fear of the future
                    -  fear of the unknown
                    -  fear of failure 
                    -  fear of not having control over your life
                    -  fear of losing someone's love

                    -  due to guilt
                    -  overindulgence
                    -  fear of rejection
                    -  difficulty providing discipline or setting limits
                    -  lack of confidence about what a parent's job should be.   

              -  inability to communicate effectively
                    -  conflicting personalities
                    -  not having your physical and emotional needs met
                    -  lack of trust and intimacy
                    -  your efforts to show love and caring are not appreciated

                IDENTITY CONFUSION
              due to pressures and expectations of family and friends
                    -  not knowing what makes you happy and how to achieve it
                    -  difficulty in deciding on a career or school path
                    -  not knowing who you are, or not being able to see yourself realistically
                    -  difficulty finding meaning and satisfaction in life.
