Welcome to my "TELETHERAPY" practice. With the beginning of Covid I decided to expand into the virtual world of telemental health.
In this new age of "Teletherapy" the therapist is televised/transported into the comfort of your own home. Clients feel safe and protected. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Gerontologist/Coach. A burden shared is a burden lifted. Active problem-solving.
Cognitive-behavioral /Mindfulness.

I am an openly gay psychotherapist and welcome diversity and multi-ethnicity. Whether you are gay, straight, bi or trans it makes no difference. People are people. My focus is on one's thinking process. Thoughts influence our emotions and behavior.
I help individuals identify self-defeating, toxic thought patterns, and substitute more accurate ways of thinking.
Although I encourage clients to understand their past,
I emphasize the here-and-now. Active problem-solving and conflict resolution.
My therapy will equip you with tools to empower yourself, accomplish your goals, and eliminate the "analysis paralysis" syndrome
Mindfulness, mind-body integration and meditation are also discussed/applied.
Sessions are customized to your needs, and conducted on a HIPAA compliant platform.
