I have had over a half-century of clinical experience, and have worked with a broad variety of clients. I see each client as a unique individual with a distinct array of problems and questions. I do not limit myself to a specific "brand" of psychotherapy, but instead design a treatment approach to match the individual client's needs, all the while recognizing that the client's situation may evolve, priorities may change, new goals may arise, and that psychotherapy at its best is often a process of illuminating a path to self fulfillment.
