Most often I work with people whose partner’s actions are motivated by narcissistic or sociopathic traits. In addition I treat depression, bipolar, panic and anxiety, stress, marital/relational, and general psychological problems.

- Direct your life in accordance with the values you cherish.
- Run your life, rather than let life run you.
- Recognize that you are the only one who controls you!
I will meet you where you are in life, and, if you agree, help you attain empowerment skills.
Three concepts will guide our work:
