At some point in their lives many people feel overwhelmed or debilitated by

problems, lossess, and stresses or just don't feel right in themselves. There is solid evidence that psychological treatment can help people move on when their own efforts, support from friends, and time are not enough.  Psychotherapy is confidential, safe, and caring. It's a good investment in oneself.

I am an American born and trained, dual citizen clinical psychologist committed to working collaboratively with my clients to help them deal with psychological,

behavioural and emotional problems; build emotional resilience; and enhance their well being and health. My work is informed by a sound understanding of basic psychological processes, training in a wide vareity of therapeutic aproaches, twenty years clinical experience, and a deep belief in people's capacity to heal. I offer individual assessment and treatment for adults, family psychoeducation, GP training and consultation, and small scale research consultation.
