My specializations include: depression; anxiety; traumatic stress; interpersonal/family conflict; poor impulse control; substance abuse; grief/loss; and self-esteem.
When life doesn't go as planned it can leave you feeling overwhelmed, unsure, and stuck. Unresolved over time, these challenges can result in feelings of anxiety, depression, or stress that you just can't seem to kick. Maybe you're just starting to sense that something is wrong or perhaps you've been struggling for quite some time. Figuring out how to overcome these obstacles can be stressful, but there is no need to struggle alone. It's possible to heal from the past, have more fulfilling relationships, break free from limiting patterns, and feel good about yourself!

Over the years I have worked with a diverse group of people ranging in age from 6 to 92! While my initial training focused on working with children and families, especially in divorce-related issues, since moving to Florida, my practice took a dramatic turn towards working with obesity and bariatric surgery patients. As this field developed, it required me to expand my focus to include addictions, trauma, depression, anxiety and relationships issues.
