In addition to psychotherapy, I also perform assessments and psychological evaluations in order to help provide a comprehensive picture of what an individual is struggling with and a recommended approach to treat the issues.

I also have extensive experience providing consultation, supervision, training, and workshops to other professionals in the field or interested organizations.

I have also had considerable experience in forensic psychology and with people who have difficulty stopping, controlling or changing their behaviors.  For more information regarding this work, please visit the Pathways Institute for Impulse Control website at As part of this work, I have co-authored two workbooks with Elizabeth Corsale MA, MFT, to help people who struggle with compulsive stealing called Taking Back What’s Been Stolen and Taking Back What’s Been Stolen for Teens.

I am also a writer and have written several books as well as contributed articles to numerous magazines and online publications. To sample some of my writing you can find me on Psychology Today. Additionally, I am a photographer.


We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit. | E.E. Cummings
