About

I believe people are basically competent, come to therapy because their usual coping skills are not working with problems. I am actively involved: therapy is a working partnership in which we review all your clues and then find solutions that fit for your specific needs. I believe in the healing qualities of relationships. I have trained in Pia Mellody's PIT Model to work with people in recovery from childhood trauma, addictions and relationship problems who are struggling with anxiety, depression and other emotional stresses. I am currently only accepting private pay for new clients.
History of work settings: programs treating incest families, private psychiatric clinic, schools, OB-GYN clinic, private practice. I have learned many skills along the way and tailor my approach for each client so that therapy meets their needs. Pia Mellody's training built a solid working model resolving codependency issues.
In practice for 42 years, have lived my own life as learning to work with others. I listen intensely, try to form partnerships with clients to bring them to their goals. I bring a lifetime of personal and professional knowledge to help plan for improvement in all areas of life. Only accepting private pay package rates for new clients at this time.
