My goal is to create a warm, supportive space that allows you to feel safe to explore your thoughts, emotions, relationships, and feelings.
For the past 30 years, I have been practicing as a clinician and a psychotherapist, helping young children, adolescents, families, couples, and the elderly. People seek me out for many different reasons. Some are facing difficult transitions; others are facing life circumstances or symptoms that seem overwhelming; and others want to learn more about themselves and are ready to take the next step in becoming who they really want to be. Together we build an ongoing and trusting relationship.
My practice specialties include:
- Loss and Grief
- Relationship Issues
- Depression and Anxiety
- Play Therapy
- Child and Adolescent issues
- Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
- Addiction or Substance Abuse
The coping skills I teach my clients help them to complete their therapy and eventually continue a healthy path on their own. My clients have been very successful overcoming personal issues caused by post-traumatic stress, unresolved anger, substance/alcohol abuse, anxiety and depression, as well as a wide range of personal problems.
I am also certified in hypnotherapy and E.M.D.R., an advanced technique proven effective for relieving trauma and anxiety. I have served as an expert advisor to the courts on alcohol and substance abuse issues, which have helped some clients regain their driving privileges when they are well/recovered.
I keep abreast of all current research and the latest treatment methods which can benefit my patients.
