Do you feel stressed out, anxious, overwhelmed?  Are you shy or introverted? Do you worry too much about the “what ifs” of life? Do you have painful memories from the past? Does anxiety and fear keep you from meeting people or being all-that-you-want-to-be in life? Do you worry too much?


If so, I may be able to help. I specialize in treating anxiety disorders of all kinds. I will work with you to help you make constructive changes to your life–and the ways you think about your life–to reduce anxiety and depression while, at the same time, increasing your peace of mind.


I am a person-centered, empathic therapist, skilled in solution-oriented therapy, combining Mindfulness with a relational, narrative approach. My ideal client prefers to achieve wellness through cognitive, behavioral, and lifestyle changes; they take medication as a last resort.


Person-centered or client-centered describes the basic philosophy underlying my approach to psychotherapy; It is based on the work of Carl Rogers who stressed that the essential role of the therapist is to be empathic, open, honest, congruent, and caring. This philosophy incorporates the belief that each individual has worth, dignity, and the capacity for self-direction; it is based on a total trust in the inherent impulse toward growth in every individual. I base my approach  on this very deep faith in the innate capacity of each person to reach toward his or her full potential.

“We do not receive wisdom, we must discover it for ourselves, after a journey through the wilderness, which no one else can make for us, which no one can spare us, for our wisdom is the point of view from which we come at last to regard the world.”      Proust
