Areas Of Specialization

HAPPINESS AND SELF-ACCEPTANCE

Think of the most precious treasure. A treasure that all women and men have yearned for. That is what happiness is. Without it, nothing we have is worth much. The good news is you can really make breakthroughs here. This is a special area of interest for me. I taught Positive Psychology at UCLA’s med school. We don’t focus on just getting you from minus 5 to neutral. Instead our goal is to get you to plus 10. Most of us have not thought very clearly about our own well-being or about how to achieve it. That is where we start.

DEPRESSION

Depression robs life of its joy. It takes many forms. It can be a feeling of hopelessness or persistent sadness. It can be a lack of motivation or energy. It can be difficulty making decisions or facing life’s challenges; worrying and insomnia; or just the blues. Depression can be treated. We will work on it from three different angles. Psychology. Biology. Social adaptation. Nobody should feel they have to live with it.

STRESS AND ANXIETY

If you experience persistent worry, if you’re uncomfortable in social situations, if you have a hard time feeling confident or trouble sleeping — these are all signs of anxiety. The good news is that there are effective treatments that help decrease and even eliminate anxiety that previously may have been disabling.

FINDING A WONDERFUL PARTNER

How do you find something so precious and rare? As a relationship therapist, I help my clients break through discouragement, understand what’s been limiting them and find the partner they seek. I find this a wonderful thing to work on in therapy. Few things make me happier than to see a client find a wonderful partner after years of frustration. (I have been invited to more than a few weddings.)

HOW CAN I LIVE A PURPOSE-DRIVEN LIFE?

You need work that not only fills the bank account but also rewards your soul. The call to change comes from deep inside. For many people there is no more important thing than living a life of purpose and meaning. The question comes in many forms. Isn’t there more to life? How can I make my life matter? How can I become the person I was destined to be? The answer can be kindled and it can illuminate your path for the rest of your life.
