Psychotherapy can help you

Welcome. I am glad that you have come to my website and I hope that you find it helpful. For many of us there are times in our lives when things are not going as well as we would like. You may be experiencing serious life issues such as depression, anxiety, intense anger and resentment, or dissatisfaction in your marriage or your family. You may be feeling a great deal of stress or you may be grieving a deep and disturbing loss. Perhaps you are simply, wanting to live a fuller life with more satisfying relationships. In any of these situations, and more, there is help.


I have been a psychotherapist for over thirty years. I am fully licensed Board Certified. My office is in Newport Beach and I invite you to consider meeting me to explore what we might do together to help you feel better.

During my career as a therapist, I have had success working with many people and many problems. I have particular experience with:

Psychotherapy involves working with someone you trust in a safe environment to share feelings and experiences that you have had. It helps to not feel so alone. Initially, as we get to know each other, we will work to understand your situation and what it will take to help you feel better. I am flexible in helping each person in the way that is suited to them. Sometimes that means working in a short term, goal oriented format on concrete problems and concerns. Sometimes that includes longer term work to explore resolve issues and come to know your self more deeply. I have extensive experience working with individuals and couples and families. I have particular expertise and training in the depth work of psychoanalysis.

I often see people once a week, however, depending on the situation I am open to seeing people as often as needed. Sometimes that includes more or less than weekly sessions and may include phone time. If you are considering psychotherapy, I invite you to come in for an initial consultation to meet me and see what this special relationship might offer you.

My office is located near the John Wayne Airport, close to the 405 and 73 freeways. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions. Please feel free to explore the rest of my website for other pertinent information to help you make this important choice to feel better.
