SpecializationAreas of specialization include:

  •     Anxiety (panic, worry, social anxiety)

  •     Depression (irritability, sadness, loss of interest)

  •     Stress and life transitions

  •     Journalists: I am building a subspecialty in the mental health needs of journalists exposed to       stress and trauma through their work. I have deep respect for the men and women who keep us informed, and I recognize that this work can have considerable personal costs. I reserve several sliding scale therapy slots for journalists who cannot afford the full fee.
