I provide a gentle, yet active approach to helping people with stress, anxiety, relationship and addictive issues. In my 30 years of psychotherapy practice I have provided a healing environment where individuals and couples make healthier decisions, reduce depression and behavioral problems.  My style is straightforward and caring. I utilize brief therapy, EMDR and hypnosis. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a Professor of Psychology and Certified Gambling and Addictions Counselor.
