About

As an experienced clinician I realize what it takes to reach out and decide it is time to seek assistance for a personal or family matter. Entering into counseling provides you an opportunity to overcome negative patterns of behavior and thinking, to foster a positive self-image, and to build fulfilling relationships with co-workers, partners, friends and family. To achieve your goals I utilize an individual approach that builds upon the strengths you already have and assist you to learn new ones. This is a collaborative process which is based on an understanding of your history and patterns, your strengths and personal goals.
I have 30 years experience working with individuals and couples with diverse issues including but not limited to communication issues, intimacy, depression, anxiety PTSD, trauma, eating disorders, OCD, hair and skin picking (BFRB's), and bi-polar disorders.
I specialize in working with couples and individuals to recognize, slow down and change their inner triggers, automatic responses, and their communication patterns. I assist each client to develop new patterns and inner resiliency to create more satisfaction in their life, relationships and career choices.
