Through cognitive behavioral techniques and grounding methods, I can guide you to address your struggles with Major Depression, Suicidality, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Personality Disorders and Addiction/ Substance Use Disorders.
I have a deep-rooted commitment to helping individuals from diverse backgrounds, backed by professional expertise in a variety of settings. But I also believe that clients are the experts on their own lives. I have worked with clients of all ages, from as young as three to late adulthood, in outpatient therapy settings; methadone clinics; intensive outpatient programs; inpatient psychiatric units, and in-home crisis intervention. One thing remains constant: the focus of therapy should be based on what YOU wish to work on.

My approach is one of meeting a teen or adult and their family where they are, understanding the root causes of substance use , depression, compulsive behaviors and "acting out" and coaching parents and loved ones to change family patterns so that the entire family can heal.
Thank you for reaching out for help, it is one of the most courageous actions any one can take. If you or a loved one is suffering with compulsions, addictive behaviors, depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement issues or any level of difficulty with adolescent substance abuse or behavioral problems I would love to be of service. I am grateful to have been a therapist for 34 years and to have the ability to engage even very resistant clients in the process of real and lasting freedom and health. My goal is to have you feeling better and improving your functioning quickly and I use many evidence based methods to these ends.
