About

People are compassionate beings and I treat each with care, support and respect. Over the years, I have learned to treat the whole mind and whole body. I have learned you can not treat one without the other. Understanding the interconnectedness of the mind and body has been my life's passion. In the 22 years of providing clinical treatment, I take a multidisciplinary approach to therapy. I use an innovative array of therapies and techniques depending on your situation and way of learning. I believe every one experiences life differently and every one is a teacher to each other.
Therapy is a collaborative journey for the client, client's family and therapist. I have worked with individuals and families in the areas of anger management, anxiety, behavioral issues, career counseling, depression, grief, pain management, problem solving skills, self-esteem, suicidal ideation, stress management and more.
I work with individuals, families and school systems. I work with adolescents through seniors. I take Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and Medicare.
