Life Adjustment Crises and Relationship Issues

Sexually Compulsive and Addictive Disorders

Emotional Intimacy Enhancement

You may want emotional intimacy but past disappointment, fear, blame, shame, romantic obsession, resentment towards your partner/spouse, low self-esteem, and sexually compulsive and addictive behavior and fantasies fuel your inability to connect - to give and feel loved.  A partner has betrayed you or you are suffering after a break-up.


Intimacy is our humanity.  To be fully connected with our self, with family and friends and to form a lasting loving bond with another human being is at the core of our existence and strivings.  Yet, we often have developed intimacy avoidant behaviors, ways of thinking and feeling that deprive us of our capacity to pursue and maintain those relationships we want the most. Often, we cannot be alone with ourselves; not feeling comfortable in our own skin due to anxiety, depression and internal preoccupation that detracts from our ability to be in the moment unfolding before us.


I reach out through over three decades of psychotherapeutic experience with individuals and couples who are challenged by intimacy issues and I help you to resolve life long patterns of unfulfilling behavior in my safe office space. My willingness to listen to you and to enter your world with a structured understanding is my therapeutic strength.


My practice addresses a full range of life adjustment issues, such as, relationship crises, depression, anxiety, wellness and creativity enhancement, and facing the fears associated with loss.  


“To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.”
