In the last ten years I have worked with clients in a variety of settings; outpatient, in-home, intensive outpatient, legal systems, clinic, and emergency room. I have also worked with a variety of needs; anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, autism, attachment disorder, other trauma related disorders, suicidal and self-injury thoughts/behaviors. In working with clients, I have seen so much resiliency. I have witnessed so much strength that often goes unnoticed by the individual them self. I find that once a client is able to identify their strength, they are able to identify their solution.

I have experience working alongside children and adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, adjustment disorders, loss, grief, the addiction of a loved one, and both adults and children (ages 3-10) who have experienced trauma.
I believe nothing is more important than an individual’s story. Your story, and the relationships it consists of, have a deep impact on your life and make up who you are, and who you become. I believe this is true for every individual, young and old. My experience as a trauma therapist has shown me the resilience of human beings and how meaningful their stories are. Through mutual trust, understanding, and the processing of your emotional experiences, we will begin to see change and embark on a pathway to healing that is comfortable and effective for you.

I have experience working with multiple populations, including people suffering from chronic illness, people living with HIV/AIDS, people living with kidney failure, the LGBTQ population, people of color, people suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, depression and anxiety, and bipolar disorder.
I believe that the relationship between the patient and therapist is sacred. Many people come to therapy having been betrayed by important people in their lives, and having a trustworthy and consistent therapist can help patients repair these wounds. I consider it my life’s work to help patients work through their past hurts so that they can live healthier and happier lives. “Sometimes we have to go backward in order to go forward.” My sentiments are also backed by research, as the therapeutic alliance is the single most important factor for therapeutic success. I am committed to building this foundation with all of my patients.

The primary focus of my practice for 40 years has been helping people achieve recovery from substance use disorders. I use a collaborative, motivational approach, rather than confrontation, and work with people on setting and achieving realistic and healthy goals for their problems. I believe, (as did Bill Wilson, the founder of AA) that there are many paths to recovery; each person must work on a program that reflects their unique needs and assets. I encourage people to explore their resources, their obstacles and their values in setting goals and in working a positive program. Secondarily, I am trained in couples/marital therapy.

I use the therapeutic relationship as the primary vehicle to provide corrective feedback to the human beings that come to see me. I model accountability, vulnerability, and grit. When I fail to uphold these virtues I own my errors and process my fallibility with my people to mend the ruptures that inevitably result in interpersonal relationships. Our caregivers, relatives, friends, acquaintances, and members of our community inflict wounds- sometimes directly, sometimes inadvertently. These wounds combine with our predispositions and are expressed as symptoms that impede our ability to experience a satisfying life. Humans inherently deserve relief from these troubling adaptations.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Blue Bell. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
