30 years of experience

I am a seasoned clinician who has been performing clinical sessions since 1986. I have treated all ages. My specialty started out with clients over age 65. However, in the last 18 years I have treated couples and family situations as well as adolescents and adults ages 18 and up. I have also had clients ages 4 and up. I have treated anxiety, depression, ADHD, transitions, work and family issues, school issues. I have treated a great deal of couples as well. I have helped a lot of clients manage their stress better. I have empowered clients to problem solve so they can manage their situation and life better. I have provided insight oriented treatment and increased self- awareness while providing support.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Client in their first session can expect to gain some support but also be asked a great deal of questions so I can do a complete assessment and get to know the issue on the " table", so I can help them in an effective and efficient manner.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have given many clients a sense of hope when they have come to me very depressed and very anxious and overwhelmed with life's challenges. I help they problem solve , get a resolution , get them unstuck, develop coping skills so they can move on with their life.

My treatment methods


I provide support to the client and I empower the client. The client gains self confidence and has an increased awareness as to how to manage the issue, problem solve and gains insight. I provide coping skills to manage the stressful situation.

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

I provide support to they gain self confidence and feel empowered in their ability to make decisions. Clients come to me in a "stuck" mode and I help them gain insight and increase their awareness to the issue to they can get "unstuck". I help them manage their stressful situation better with coping skills that they will learn in treatment. I help clients communicate better in their relationships. I get them to accept and commitment to what they can tolerate.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

At times clients will get homework that makes them think. I may use a few different techniques that gets them to think by listing pros and cons . I help them understand what they can tolerate with themselves and with their boss, or PCP, or family issue and or whatever they are going through/the issue at hand.


I help clients desensitize themselves to other's issues. I teach communication skills that help their interactions with others. They soon understand how to communicate better while they learn better interpersonal skills and how to communicate better overall. Some breathing techniques, relaxation skills and journaling are suggested.

Couples Counseling

I help clients communicate their feelings in a socially appropriate way. I help partners understand their partners and not take the issues personally. I teach assertive communication and non defensive, and non accusatory communication. I teach mutual respect. I help them understand how they communicate by using the intervention of role-play.
