Are you feeling that issues in your life are too stressful or painful to cope with on your own? Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, guilt, anger (your own or some else's), mood swings, trauma (rape, combat, incest, other) OCD, relationship issues, or other emotional difficulties. Maybe you are wondering about your purpose in life or struggling with your spirituality. You might feel you are alone in your suffering. I am a Clinical Psychologist dedicated to providing a compassionate and respectful environment where you can explore these and other life issues that are causing you distress.
My approach to treatment is integrative with a strong foundation in Cognitive Behavioral and other evidence-based therapies. Together we will decide which approach(es) are best suited to your needs, and develop a plan on how to achieve and maintain your goals for a more fulfilling life.
Some of my specialties are: MARITAL and SEX THERAPY, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, TRAUMA / PTSD, SPIRITUAL ISSUES and/or FAITH BASED Judeo Christian (Catholic, Protestant, non-denominational) treatment I trained in Sex Therapy at the Loyola University Sex Clinic Read the results of my research at www.warveteranministers.org
