I have been in practice for 35 years. I treat children with behavioral problems, children-teens-adults with depression, sleep disorders, panic/anxiety attacks, bipolar disorder, phobias, family conflicts, coping skills, academic issues, special education consulting, Employee Assistance, marital/couples counseling. Therapeutic approaches are designed specifically for the individual. We set goals to measure progress and modify treatment based on how goals are being met.My approach is to focus on short term therapy to teach individuals better coping skills to use outside of the office.

I work with adults, children, adolescents, families. Marital/couples counseling and treating children with behavoral disorders are a specialty. I work with addictions--substance abuse, internet, sexual, shopping,etc. I have a great deal of success working with panic/anxiety disorders. I help clients obtain Social Security benefits if appropriate.

I provide a wholistic approach to individual issues. Insight and knowledge starts to develop in the sessions. My concern is how helpful it is in 'real life.' I help clients become more content and accepting of life situations. Clients learn more effective/efficient ways to cope with stress/anxiety.
