EVENING APPTS. I chose a PhD in Clinical Psychology in order to help individuals suffering with the emotional pain and upheaval that life's ups and downs can bring. I enjoy a close working relationship and collaborative trust based connection with my patients, which brings the reward of personal growth and stimulates the healing process. With more than 28 years in the mental health profession, and 25+ years in private practice, I continue working to expand my education and experience to include a wide variety of psychotherapeutical skill sets.
Personality dynamics that impact daily functioning are at the core of many relationship conflicts. Personality dysfunction, disruptions, traumas or experiences also affect our personal wellbeing. I enjoy treating these issues and also specialize in the treatment of PTSD, depression, and issues relating to anxiety, fears, dissociative disorders, and marital discord/divorce.
In addition to individual psychotherapeutic treatment, I teach biofeedback and relaxation methodology techniques for managing stress, and severe pain due to injury or trauma. I work with individuals, couples, groups, and am experienced in divorce mediation. I offer a free consultation, and we can explore how dynamic psychotherapeutic treatment can help you.
