Note: I will be out of the country and unavailiable for appointments until July 1 2015. Current and former clients may call my answering service or call or text my cell phone and I will respond as soon as possible.

I will also be accessible via the contact page on this website, for potential new ciients seeking appointments after July 1.


People often experience psychotherapy as low-key but intensely productive in dealing with mental health and relationship challenges. My practice is deliberately limited so that I can give sufficient time and energy to each patient. I put all my experience, attention, and resources at your service.

Our first session (or two) involves getting to know each other, defining the problem or problems, and agreeing to the terms of therapy. From there we might decide to learn and practice specific behavioral or problem-solving techniques, explore the past or the here-and-now, or focus on emotions or inner life. We take our time developing a flexible treatment plan together.

My work schedule accommodates weekday morning, afternoon, and evening hours. We generally arrange one 45-60 minute session per week. We experiment with more sessions initially and fewer sessions later as we achieve our goals.

My quiet, comfortable office is centrally located on the main floor of a small office building near University Mall, and is accessible for those with mobility needs.
