After 23 years in private practice, I closed my office in August 2013 to devote myself full-time to efforts to reform the mental health field that is currently unduly shaped by the pharmaceutical industry. The latest figures reveal that 1 in 4 Americans is on at least one psychotropic drug, with all the adverse effects that go with that. For more information click on the Facts tab and the Media tab. I will update this site with educational information about the state of the field and its impact on the public.

About My Practice    

I have a general practice helping individuals and couples struggling with some aspect of living. This can manifest emotionally (anxiety, depression, anger, stress), in relationship difficulties, or in self-defeating behavior patterns.


My focus is NOT on mental illness. My focus IS on what you want to achieve in life and how to help you get there. This involves building on your strengths not dwelling on perceived limitations.

I provide focused help with a practical and collaborative approach that allows for using whatever interventions work, regardless of the theoretical school or treatment model from which they may come.
Though trained as a psychoanalyst, I primarily use tools from Coaching, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and Positive Psychology.
