I have been a practicing therapist for almost 30 years. Many have asked me how I do my job - "listening to people's problems all day". For me, it an honor and a privilege to help someone work through a troubling issue and find balance again in their life, providing support and compassion through the process. I work with individuals and couples; male and female; age 5 years and up. My practice is general and broad based. A few specialty areas are children and adolescents; parenting; anxiety; women's issues; depression; working through life changes; grief and loss; coping skills; geriatric issues.

After 20+ years as a practicing clinical social worker, primarily in the field of addictions, I have assisted many to gain insight into their lives and beliefs, allowing them to make changes for a more meaningful life. While much of my practice was in the field of addictions, it allowed me to gain experience with clients working on a variety of other concerns such as: relationship issues, abuse/trauma, depression, anxiety and grief, to name a few.

Anxiety in particular can be powerful and confusing, especially when so much in the world is beyond our control. When the things we do in response to stress, grief, loss, and trauma become harmful, the light at the end of the tunnel becomes more distant. I believe in the power of every person to find the strength and ability to move through life’s challenges, and the value of recognizing what is ours to control and what is not. I encourage being careful, not fearful, and I will work with you to establish hope and faith in yourself and the world, while navigating the nuances of various mood and emotional issues.

Growing up in a poor neighborhood and being raised by a single mother has shaped my perspective on community mental health empowerment. Some people believe that poverty destroys individuals. However, I witnessed first-hand, how the lack of effective mental health treatment destroys a whole community. Frustrated with the deteriorated mental state of my community, I decided to DO something about it! Opening Evergreen Empowerment Group is my solution to this global community mental health crisis. Together we will explore mindfulness and commitment to value-based living through self exploration and healing.

Anger Management Therapists

How long does therapy take for anger management?

Treatment duration depends on the person’s specific challenges and circumstances. There are treatments for anger problems that are shorter and more goal-oriented, like cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), which can last weeks to months. Others, like dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) may last between six months and a year, while a more intensive treatment, like psychodynamic therapy, is open-ended, and clients may see their therapist for a year or longer.

How do you know if you need therapy for anger management?

Everyone gets mad from time to time. But when angry outbursts become frequent and cause damage to relationships, whether at home or in the office, it may be a good time to look into therapy. A therapist can assess where a client’s anger may be coming from, suggest strategies for averting angry outbursts, and help a client create a plan to become a calmer version of themselves.

Is there medication for anger management?

Medications do exist that help people mitigate the feeling of anger, but these are reserved for people with anger-related psychiatric disorders, such as intermittent explosive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, or in some cases borderline personality disorder. In these cases, antidepressant medications may be prescribed to help with the client’s symptoms. In most cases of anger management, however, talk therapy is the recommended treatment, along with lifestyle changes where relevant.

What’s the best way to encourage someone to seek help for anger issues?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual’s behavior affected either themselves or others should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
