I have been in practice 40 years, focusing on mental health problems. I specialize in helping people identify, assess, and take appropriate action to reduce the stress in their lives and improve their relationships. I teach how to recognize and act on feelings appropriately in order to maintain personal boundaries, maintain a low stress level, and focus more on the opportunities life has to offer. I am the developer of Boundary Management Therapy. If you would like to learn the magic of BMT, contact me.

I provide individual, family, couples, and group therapy. I accept insurance, in-network and out of network, and will work out a reasonable co-payment with you. Call, or email me for your first appointment.
