I’ve been practicing for over twenty five years and during this time period I’ve developed a treatment style that can lead to full recovery of your problems.  As  you read into my method you will begin to get a sense of how I do treatment.  Notice that I will be helping you work with your feelings, learning to identify them and finding a way to gain wisdom from them. This can lead to personality evolution and the reduction of psychological pain.
A particularly interesting area for me centers around somatoform  disorders. People who have chronic conditions such as body pain, Lupis, Diabetes, Muscular Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia and other autoimmune deficiency disorders may find surprising relief through my interventions. I have had great success with these conditions.

In the following pages I’ve outlined my specialties. I am relatively certain that one or more of these psychological ailments keep you from enjoying your life and living it within a frame of happiness and security. 

I am going to list my specialties and index each of them for your review on The INDEX PAGE. If any of these spectrums of pain relate to you, and you are comfortable with my method of treatment, then consider giving me a call and let’s see if we can get you on the path to recovery. I will be able to tell you during your first session [most of the time] what is the root cause of your problem[s] and then very clearly and simply explain to you what is required to correct it permanently. For those perspective patients that are skeptical of this claim I set a reasonably short time frame for you to see results [6 weeks to 2 months usually]. By that time if you don’t see the results you came here to get then it is best to move on to another therapist.
