About

I have successfully treated clients who are now living healthy, productive lives who have had the following problems: Trauma, victims of physical, sexual and mental abuse, families with relationship issues, oppositional teens, marriages headed for divorce, severe anxiety, living with borderline personality disorder, and individuals diagnosed with bipolar disorder and their partners. FAMILY AND MARITAL ISSUES: DIVORCE, CO-PARENTING, ANGST RIDDEN TEENAGERS.
I am especially competent helping individuals suffering from difficult memories from abuse or trauma. Even those people who believe something happened, but can't remember, have successfully been set free. You can be restored to a place where the light in your life returns and you feel and live free from your trauma.
I am capable of helping the individual suffering with bipolar disorder as well as helping families and friends understand and cope with their situation. Clients with bipolar participating in my support groups have been saved from suicide. I have a flexible appointment schedule to meet your needs including Saturday appointments.
