What is your style/approach to therapy?

I help people understand repetitive patterns that cause disruption to personal, occupational, and relationship success. As we proceed in therapy, you’ll learn about your own patterns, so you can develop newer, healthier ways to approach life challenges. I’m especially aware of how many people come to therapy hoping to feel better right away, but instead struggle for a period of time. Sometimes people in the middle of therapy find that they do better in daily functioning before they feel better emotionally. But as therapy progresses into its later stage, we will work together for a happier, more hopeful future.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

No matter your ethnicity, religious or cultural background, sexual orientation or gender identity, you are welcome to my therapy practice. I also welcome those who have had prior difficulties with therapy.

Is there any research-based work you’ve done that you found particularly exciting, and how has that informed your practice today?

I am also an expert and national speaker on bipolar disorder. My book, Owning Bipolar: How Patients and Families Can Take Control of Bipolar Disorder is widely regarded as an important work in the field of bipolar treatment.
