Personal Statement

I have been a therapist for thirty years. In my work, I try to create a climate of safety and trust. I am an active therapist, who tries to shape the treatment to the particular needs of the patient. Therapy helps people overcome blocks to greater satisfaction in their life. I work with people to help them uncover and change self defeating patterns in their interpersonal, work and creative life. We often explore what experiences in one's early life gets in the way in the patient's current functioning.

I enjoy working with a wide range of people struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, underachievement, etc. In addition, I have a specialty in infertility, adoption and family building. Within this specialty, I also treat adult adopted persons and run support groups for women over 40 struggling with infertility.
