About

I work collaboratively with my clients to expand their insight into all the relevant factors and/or influences that are keeping them from reaching their full potential. These factors often include, but are not limited to; the identified stressor(s) that brought them into therapy; the effectiveness (or lack of effectiveness) of their current coping strategies; the influence past experiences and physical discomfort can have on their decision making and behavior; and increasing his or her awareness of their individual strengths and weakness. Simply put, I systematically help my clients make appropriate changes needed to meet their identified treatment goals.
I have worked extensively with adults aged 18 to 65+ in both private practice and hospital settings providing individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy. I have special expertise in treating major depression (and related mood disorders), anxiety, obsessive compulsive (and related disorders), and various other mental / behavioral health issues.
I also have extensive experience with children and adolescents regarding the following issues; Major Depression (and related mood disorders); Anxiety; Obsessive Compulsive (and related disorders); Behavior Disorders; Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder; Self-Esteem; and a wide range of situational stressors that children and adolescents struggle with at home and school.
