I have been helping others improve their mental and emotional well-being for over 20 years. I enjoy working with all ages (infancy through adulthood and old age). I am equipped to handle severe mental illness and crises as well as difficult life transitions and stressful times. As a former Navy Psychologist I work exceptionally well in areas of traumatic stress and substance use disorders. I work in a collaborative way to find the most effective treatment for you. By the end of your first session, we have identified the problems to work on and a plan to help.

I help people by teaching them new skills to cope with high stress, anger, communication in relationships and families, or assertiveness. We analyze unhealthy thought, feeling and behavior patterns and learn more balanced ways of thinking and behaving. This leads to a decrease in emotional distress and a sense of well-being or happiness.

I use psychoeducational therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), interpersonal supportive therapy, to help with the least intrusion into your privacy. I can do testing regarding ADHD - attention deficit hyperactivity. I conduct Medicare authorized tests of memory on a yearly basis for elderly clients.
