About

I can see the potential for true "health" in every individual and am positive and excited about each client. I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, an MFT license, an MA in Counseling Psychology, an MS in Secondary Ed/Business, & a BS in Fash Merch/Sciences. I was always led to the power of the mind and the cause/effect of family & other relationships on mental health. Psychology is my true calling, gift, and passion. Everyone needs to briefly uncover perceptions from the past and recognize how these perceptions can block us from living a balanced life in the present.
I prefer Psychodynamic Therapy, as this gets quickly to the underlying cause, the real issue(s), blocking us from living in our full potential. We need to recognize these blockages in our lives and relationships and release them to experience more health, love and joy.
In addition, I offer hypnotherapy, individual and group therapy and a unique drink choice program for problem drinkers. I also work with an excellent holistic counselor (Ally Tracy, MA), who specializes in intuitive, holistic counseling, life coaching, chakra balancing and creative arts therapy-should you require or request such counseling.
