My Clinical Psychology private practice allows for maximum individual attention and confidentiality. Since 1988, I have specialized in treating trauma conditions resulting from war, auto, workplace, violence and residuals of childhood abuse. Related conditions include depression, anxiety, physical pain, relationship difficulties, addictions and cognitive disorders. As a result of auto and occupational injuries, many patients/clients suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries; and they can greatly benefit from my individual and group psychotherapy. I am a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist so some of my work involves cases in litigation including evaluations, testimony and expert witness services.

Individuals with PTSD and TBIs are often confused. They feel overwhelmed, helpless and stigmatized. Friends and family often do not understand their difficulties which causes painful isolation. It is essential to connect with professionals who understand their conditions and needs, and who can provide the appropriate treatment to speed recovery.

Prior to private practice, I worked as a Clinical Psychologist at Providence Hospital and Ypsilanti Regional Psychiatric Hospital. I was the founding director of the Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Psychological Trauma at Detroit Receiving Hospital and University Health Center where I also served as Instructor in Psychiatry.
