Hello, thanks so much for taking the time to visit my profile. I have been a therapist for over 20 years. The first day was quite profound September 11, 2001. It was my first year as an intern, and I walked to my desk. Well people were shouting and telling me to turn on the TV. I quickly realized the impact of world events on our community and individuals experience.. As a clinician, I have had the privilege to work in a variety of settings including community based middle health centers, faith, based organizations, hospice, social, work, outpatient psychiatry, partial hospitalization programs, college, counseling centers, as well as serving as a full-time faculty, member, and a bachelors social work program. My goal is a therapist is to treat each client as a unique individual. This is the holistic approach that I bring and I try to utilize all my experience to help each person achieve their goals and to move forward in life.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
I try to give clients a clear idea of how I view their circumstances and what strategies I think are best. I believe in open dialogue and a collaborative process.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
My approach is holistic in that I treat the whole person not just the disease or presenting problem. I am trained in psychodynamic theory, family systems,solution focused, and CBT.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
My biggest strength is to really get to know each client as an individual. I try to speak to people in common every day language, and relate to them as they see the world.
