As a middle-aged lawyer with plenty of life experience observing the stresses on others, I help people identify, handle and overcome various severe stresses in their personal and professional lives. These stresses can be legal -- caused by lawsuits or pending or threatened government investigations which threaten to ruin your business or cause you to be found guilty of a crime and jailed. These stresses may also be regular life events...but such events invariably involve legal issues.
Many stresses people feel can be traced to a deception or series of deceptions to which one feels or suspects one is being subject. I have confronted and successfully unmasked some serious deceptions and I believe I am very good at unwinding and revealing both the deception -- and the deceptor (or deceiver, if you prefer) -- that may be causing you undeserved pain and suffering.
I do not practice psychiatry. I look for real, external problems in the world around you. I look to identify them, and then work with you to solve them for you. I help real people, real victims. I do not work with -- and I seek to avoid -- crazy people. If your problem is internal -- that is, mental, or between the ears -- and you suffer from psychiatric disorders (like narcissistic personality disorder, histronic personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, hallucinations, delusions of grandeur or other delusions, neuroses, psychoses, attention-deficit disorder or other disorders that are defined with a phrase ending in the word 'syndrome'), you may wish to see a medical professional.
As a lawyer, you can be totally candid with me and have the assurance that (unless you plan to commit a crime or engage in fraud) your conversation will stay totally confidential. I also take strong professional pride in maintaining the confidences of my clients and friends.
Disclaimer -- since I am a lawyer and we disclaim everything. I am only a licensed lawyer and not a licensed psychiatrist, acupuncturist or quack doctor. This means that, purportedly, I am not crazy, since I believe all psychiatrists enter that field in order to indulge their compulsion to manipulate others while getting paid for it.
