Announcement icon Greetings! During this stressful time due to COVID-19 my in-person office will be closed. However, I will be doing phone/ video sessions
Are you Depressed, Anxious, Confused, having trouble making Decisions? -have you suffered a loss of any kind? Are you in Chronic Pain, have medical issues or have Relationship/Family isues? Want to give up? Any problems not enjoying life as much as you could? Problems big or small are still problems... Sometimes, it is just nice to have a CONFIDENTIAL, non-judgmental experienced person with whom to share these issues. Plain, straight-talking objective feedback is sometimes all you need. For deeper issues we can take the journey into the unexamined life together in a safe environment...
30+ years international experience helping achieve direction, health and happiness. Depression, Anxiety, abuse, PTSD, I.Q., psych testing, custody/grief counseling, geriatrics/end-of-life issues, ADHD, Bi-Polar disorder,chronic pain, phobias, learning/physical , Autism Spectrum Disorder, LGBTG, suicide,relationships, ages and stages in life. Big Picture Psychology puts it all in perspective
I have lived and worked all over the world and am sensitive and respectful of all ethnicities, religions and cultures. I speak Spanish and Italian and some French and German.Communication and understanding others are my passions in an environment of understanding and mutual respect.
