I began my career at Jackson Memorial Hospital in the Psychiatric Emergency Room, later at Miami Veteran Affairs Hospital, Broward County Sexual Assault treatment Center, Concord Hospital in NH, Community Mental Health in NY and now private practice in Fort Lauderdale.
Much more than just "talk therapy!" I believe an empathic, trusting, therapeutic relationship in a safe and supportive setting is the foundation for healthy change. I will discuss and measure your symptoms using rating scales and self-report forms. I will give you time to tell your story. Then we develop your treatment plan to get you better in the quickest possible time frame. Let's find a resolution for your symptoms.

My business focuses on the treatment of clients who have dealt with sexual abuse and the trauma that it causes. I have been honored to work providing therapy to clients for more than 30 years. When we work together we can help you heal, rebuild your life and re-imagine who you are. When you need help to figure out how to put the pieces back in your life after sexual abuse changes everything, I can help because I am a survivor and I understand what you feel. I hope to have the opportunity to help you feel whole again.

Most of my clients are intelligent, spiritual and insightful, seeking enlightenment, peace and love. Many have existential problems, leftover hurts and traumas from childhood, low self-esteem. I have seen many victims of sexual abuse and other traumas. We move through understanding responsibility, forgiving self and others, and ultimately moving to self acceptance. I recommend meditation to all of my clients for the purpose of achieving peace, self discovery, learning to love and to connect with something much larger than the self (call it what you will).

When something is painful or disturbing, it leaves a lasting impression that continues to affect the way you think, feel and act. By eliminating the ongoing influence of past events through Rapid Resolution Therapy, healing occurs and change is automatic. If you have been unable to successfully change how you feel or act, it is likely that you are being affected by experiences from your past. You may consciously understand the value of changing a behavior, but unless your deeper mind is transformed, change is not likely.

You find yourself dealing with life in ways that are not healthy, appropriate, or adaptive. You function with high levels of stress, leading to more conflicts, more anger, guilt and shame, and more stress. You start to believe that something is wrong with you, that you are a bad person, that you are not worthy of love. You feel trapped. Unresolved or disturbing memories, childhood maltreatment, and traumatic events shape the ways you view the world and the ways you view yourself. But trust me: you do not have to be scripted by your past. You can leave your past in the past and own back your life.

Are you feeling overwhelmed or anxious with the events in your life? Perhaps, you often feel alone in the company of other people. Or continually find yourself making attempts? Or work on your relationship, yet nothing seems to change? Do you want to build lasting relationships with the people around you? Perhaps you need support as you make a major life transition. As your therapist, we can explore your past; your past holds precious keys to who you are today, and finding those keys can open new doors to show up in relationships differently and not allow the past to dictate your current relationships.
