I have been in private practice for 25 years working with individuals, couples, and groups. Each day I am grateful for the meaningful and creative work that my psychotherapy practice affords. As Irv Polster, a master therapist and superb teacher of Gestalt Therapy says, "Every person's life is worth a novel."

My work has been informed by my training and study in Experiential Psychotherapy, in family therapy, in Transactional Analysis and Gestalt Therapy, in Psychodynamic Group Psychotherapy, in marital therapy, and in understanding the human experience through the hundreds of patients I have been privileged to encounter. Education and training in the field remain compelling to me as new discoveries in brain behavior, trauma, and the addictive process unfold.
