I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 25 years of experience treating children, adolescents, families and adults. I provide highly indiviudalized therapy to each and every client. I integrate techniques from several theoretical orientations, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, family systems theory, and psychodynamic theory, to formulate an indiviudalized treatment plan for each client. Within the session, I create a safe, compassionate and confidential setting for clients to address their core issues and to work out past and present difficulties.
I treat depression, anxiety, anger, bipolarity, obsessive-compulsiveness, and dissociation. I treat relationship issues: marital conflict, parenting/step-parenting dilemmas, and life transition issues. I manage psychotropic medications. My clients are often able to discontinue the use of a prescription medication. In other cases, I help clients adjust when a medication is clearly a benefit.
I have extensive experience treating trauma, both recent, acute trauma and the residue of past trauma, such as a history of sexual and physical abuse. I successfully treat gun violence. Please call me to begin your healing journey. I'm knowledgable about local colleagues, and I will make sure you get the help you need.
