Is anger or irritable mood preventing you from feeling and being your best? Is a hurting relationship weighing you down and keeping you from enjoying life the way you really want to? Have you tried solving your problems on your own but things are still the same? Don’t give up, because with the right information and some new skills your life can change for the better.

I'm a highly motivated therapist specializing in anger management (including road rage therapy), couples counseling, and helping parents who have children and teenagers with behavior problems. I also treat generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social phobia, and depression. I offer free consultations.

My style is to be more active than passive. I keep a general aim for all my clients, which is “progress.” You can make positive progress as you gain both insight and skills. The emphasis on skills enables you to more rapidly improve your life.

I want my clients to know that I am warm, caring and respectful. I have a sense of humor. With couples I don’t take sides or give the impression that I am a judge. I understand that both partners must feel supported. I use a wide variety of therapy models and choose them according to the specific needs of my clients.

My strengths are in treating anger and anxiety disorders, marriage counseling, and parent-child relationship issues. I use Imago Relationship Therapy with couples and families, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Exposure Therapy, Psychosocial Education, Parent Behavioral-Systemic Training (Parent Coaching), Mindfulness Training, as well as many other methods of therapy.

I treat difficult marriages, especially those affected by infidelity and extra-marital affairs. In such situations healing and reconciliation are absolutely possible.

I am an active member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA), the International Association of Marriage and Family Counselors (IAMFC), and the American Counseling Association (ACA). I am a published author of six books, the most recent one being: Desensitizing Anger,” and five other which focus on adolescent intervention and prevention programs. I am a Hazelden author and I continue to write on the topics of anger management and family relationships.
