Provider type: Licensed Professional Counselor
I have been a psychotherapist for over 25 years, treating a wide range of populations and disorders. My counseling style is warm and supportive, but I will challenge my clients in a gentle empathetic way to promote self -awareness as well as having them take responsibility for their choices, which may keep them stuck in self-restricting and self -damaging ways.
My approach combines Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Client-Centered and Psychodynamic. I will utilize the style that best meets the needs of my clients and I will begin treatment where my client is and then tailor the therapy as trust is built.
My expertise is in treating clients who suffer from anxiety, depression, OCD, and other mood disorders. Additional specialties are working with young adults who are facing difficult transitions and working with parents who struggle with children who have behavioral difficulties and other parenting issues. I also assist parents who are going through a separation or divorce develop healthy co-parenting skills to help their children with the changing family.
