About

I am a psychiatric nurse, counselor, and a psychotherapist. I provide counseling services to a wide variety of clients. I do not write prescriptions for medication. I work with a broad variety of individuals and additionally have a focus on medical/healthcare providers. I provide dynamic counseling, psychotherapy, and support in a safe setting. As a therapist I am active in the room providing feedback and challenges as appropriate. I use existential psychodynamic techniques, CBT, Reality Therapy, motivational interviewing and bibliotherapy and apply the principles and procedures of counseling to assess and treat client issues.
I work with a broad variety of isssues including individuals with mood and anxiety disorders, work stress, depression, obsessions, selected eating disorders, health issues, grief and and loss, illness, and end of life issues, and with families of the mentally ill. The work is toward emotional flexibility and cognitive health.
I bring my extensive psychiatric nursing skills into focus, evaluate health concerns and medications for referral and treatment. I collaborate when appropriate, with primary care providers and psychiatrists, providing monitoring and feedback of client progress. I provide client-focused counseling, a supportive environment, and challenge to change.
