My philosophy toward treatment is to not only address the particular issue at hand, but to also work to boost my clients’ overall emotional intelligence so they will be able to adapt and excel when they face new situations. As we work together, you will gain powerful insights about yourself, and develop your innate capacity to solve problems and manage and/or resolve personal and professional issues. Thus, you will be equipped with powerful emotional intelligence boosting tools that will forever widen your scope and help you to lead a productive and satisfying life that is filled with meaning, creativity, clarity and balance.
Therapy for Individuals, Couples and Families
I provide goal-oriented and solution-focused therapy that is active and engaging, and tailored to each client. I use an integrated approach, which combines practical wisdom from multiple therapeutic approaches that include CBT, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mindfulness and Positive Psychology.
I am a pragmatist with a goal-oriented treatment philosophy. During treatment, we will discuss and analyze your issues in depth so you will have a clearer understanding of them and the dynamics involved. We will then collaborate to design a clear management strategy or resolution that is tailored to you and your unique circumstances. During this process you will learn relevant emotional intelligence concepts and skills that you can use in the future as well.
My clients are people who are looking for more authenticity and meaning in life, and who want to explore the real-life and intimate personal problems they may be experiencing such as:
- Feeling unfulfilled at home or work
- Going through a life-transition (new job, divorce/separation, children being born)
- Having trouble finding a love relationship
- Wanting more from a relationship
- Career Burnout
- Grief and Loss
Personal and Professional Development Consultation
Clients for these consultations include organizations, educational institutions, private groups, individuals, or families who recognize the vital role emotional competence plays in high performance. Clients usually seek an assessment and resolution of a single issue or series of issues, or would like further training for the members of their organization in emotional intelligence.
During the consult we will collaboratively analyze the issue in depth to increase your understanding of the dynamics and emotional issues that lie at the root of the problem. We will then work together to develop a practical strategy to resolve or manage the issue that is specifically tailored to your needs. During this process you will learn workable concepts, universal principles and practical tools that can also be applied to future situations as well.
The method of analysis and the practical skills learned will enhance your emotional intelligence skills and will help you gain the emotional sophistication needed to excel and thrive in our modern, fast-paced world.

Even though many of us may not recall them, we all have four to five dreams each night, and when we dream, our subconscious speaks to us. If we tap into this wealth of information, we can jump-start tremendous personal and professional growth. I use a modern approach that puts you in the driver’s seat. I can teach you simple techniques that will help you recall your dreams and focus your dreams on solving problems.
Many people use their dreams to solve problems, generate new ideas, make business and personal decisions, overcome creative impasses, and attain greater self-awareness and self-confidence. So can you!
I treat my clients using a mix of goal- and solution-focused therapy — with or without medication, depending on their individual needs.
