""Men are not troubled by the events of the day but by their interpretation of those events". What does this statement mean to you? To me it means that pretty much anything can happen around us and the ONLY thing that really upsets us is the meaning WE attach to that happening. I enjoy working with adults, adolescents, couples and families to overcome any number of thought-based issues like anger, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, co-dependency, body image issues, binge eating, grief and PTSD. I also have years of clinical experience working with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders."

They want to experience greater health and well-being, at work, home, and everywhere in between. They know how to survive and are full of strengths, however, may not always notice them. Although they will find it difficult to reach out for help, they courageously do so anyway."
