“I have been in private practice since 2002 and I have worked with a wide range of individuals, couples and families. A safe, professional environment is provided in which each person(s) may best explore the issue(s) most important to each of them. I am genuinely passionate about my work and dedicated to helping clients realize and develop their strengths, potential and capacity for growth and change. My education and extensive training covers general psychology and marriage and family therapy with a renewed focus on neuroscience and how we CAN transform our lives by modifying our thoughts. Whether you desire to improve your life in some way or explore any aspect of your life more in-depth, the time is right to reach out and begin the process.
I provide therapeutic services to a diverse set of clients, from elementary aged children to elder individuals (85+ years old) addressing a wide range of issues which often lends itself to clients enhancing their lives. I rely on an eclectic approach, incorporating cognitive-behavioral therapy and aspects of neuroscience while holding a systems perspective. Systems include one’s home environment, close friends, or relatives, one’s work setting and the system which comprises our mind, body and spiritual selves—indeed, one’s entire being.
My background is quite varied, as I have worked with many different individuals over the years. As an undergraduate and graduate student I participated in volunteer work and various internships. These included working at a women’s shelter for battered women and children, at an elementary school, a nursing home as well as having worked at various inpatient facilities for clients struggling with chemical dependency, eating disorders, and dual diagnoses.
My firm belief is that each person can live a fulfilled life full of vitality regardless of one’s age—however, one must be healthy in order to achieve and maintain optimal vitality.”
