Professionally, I think of myself as a "solutions architect," providing those I serve with actionable strategies and skills, a Swiss Army knife, to take the obstacles in our paths and build on the opportunities they offer.
At Solution-Driven Change, our mission is to alleviate suffering and foster the discovery and achievement of potential through applying evidence-informed, reliable, and practical psychological change principles. Strategies, interventions, and tools are tailored to the current needs and unique life circumstances of those seeking help. We are pandemic-tested, Covid-toughened, and determined to be of service to individuals, couples, and families both in-person and digitally.
I strive to be challenging and direct, but not judgmental; open-minded and willing to let people explore options in life; careful to not rush to diagnose and pathologize ; and deeply respectful of the intricacies of the human condition.
I’ve been a clinical psychologist in private practice for 35 years and my passion for helping people grows each year. I treat a broad spectrum of behavioral, emotional, and interpersonal disorders. I treat the person, and not just the disorder, using a comprehensive, individualized strategy that includes a wide range of clinical skills and interventions.
The meaning of my professional life lies in helping the people I serve discover and realize the meaning of their lives. I am relentless in the pursuit of that intention.
My office is conveniently located at the corner Pacific Park Drive and Mareblu Lane (one block west of Moulton Parkway) in the Pacific Park Medical-Dental building.
