I am a licensed psychologist who has been practicing as a psychotherapist for more than 30 years. I work with adults of all ages and specialize in working with people who are in a life transition or who feel stuck and are seeking a change in their circumstances. For much of my career, I have worked with adults who have been traumatized by domestic violence, childhood abuse or being in a dysfunctional family. As a result of my work with both trauma and life transitions, I have experience with grief and loss as well as with individuals who are depressed or anxious.
I look forward to working with you to achieve a sense of greater accomplishment, control and peace in your life. I am familiar with, and use, a variety of therapeutic approaches depending on the needs of the person and his or her unique circumstances. These modalities include (but are not limited to) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Supportive Counseling, and Psycho Dynamic Therapy (where one’s history helps one understand present behavior and emotional reactions). Sessions are usually 45 minutes long. At our first meeting, some initial paperwork and an information-gathering interview will help us decide on a way to proceed. We will work together to identify your goals and aspirations and the steps to achieve them as well as in developing your strengths and the skills to address the challenges in your life.
