I provide psychotherapy to adults and adolescents in my Denver private practice, including couples and family therapy. I love working with people to help them resolve the difficult issues that life sometimes tosses in our faces.
My approach is to follow the lead of the client in terms of his or her goals, offering feedback based on years of clinical experience. I want to help everyone become the best, happiest, most confident and loving person that he or she can be.
Abraham Maslow, a famous psychologist recognized for his development of the hierarchical pyramid of needs to achieve self-actualization, defined the latter as representing the growth of an individual toward fulfillment of the highest needs, that is, those that give meaning to one’s life.
“What is necessary to change a person is to change his/[her] awareness of himself/[herself].”
“If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.”
I specialize in working with individuals who are seeking insight-oriented change within themselves and/or involving their relationships (e.g., couples therapy, family therapy, parent-teen relationships). I also work with persons who suffer from childhood trauma that is causing depression, anxiety, and underachieving.
I also provide grief counseling for losses from death or relationship dissolution.
When possible, I offer group therapy in my clinical practice. Currently, I am advertising a group called “Coping Well with Life Transitions” that will be dealing with all types of life transitions, e.g. divorce, new relationship, loss of a loved one, empty nest depression, post-partum issues, retirement, new job or new to the city, etc. Participants will discuss various ways of coping with the intense feelings precipitated by transitions in their lives, sharing deeply as participants get to know each other.

If you or a friend or loved one is considering therapy, feel free to give me a call. I will be happy to discuss your situation briefly at no charge before you decide whether you want to schedule an appointment. 504.232.8884 is my work cell phone. If you want to schedule a face-to-face appointment, we can meet and see if there is a good fit between us, which is necessary for therapy to work for you.
