I am a NYS licensed psychologist with over 30 years of experience in private practice, offering counseling and psychotherapy to individuals, couples, families, ages 8 to 80+, via in-person sessions in my pleasant office in Montgomery, NY (Orange County), or by telephone.

My therapeutic approach is rooted in the belief that we all have an innate inclination toward healthy personal growth and development, and relationships with others. I tend to encourage my clients to examine and make wise choices regarding their assumptions, thoughts, and actions, and I work with clients to develop and implement reasonably clear plans for leading the kind of lives they feel good about leading. I respect and support personal integrity and authenticity. Common problems addressed include anxiety & phobias, stress management, trauma, OCD, depression, grief, anger management, relationship issues, recovery from addictions. Therapeutic approaches I draw from include humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, somatic, solution-focused, and systemic philosophies of psychotherapy. Feel free to email or phone me if you have specific questions about how we might work together.
