I am a licensed psychologist and have been practicing for more than 20 years. I work with adult clients and have specialized training in working with couples, childhood trauma, and the application of cognitive/behavioral techniques to changing core beliefs and patterns that interfere with present day functioning.
I also work with the following issues and problem areas:
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Dissociative disorders
- Interpersonal issues
- Gay and lesbian issues (including couples work)
- Life transitions
- Family of origin issues
I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor that strives to help clients develop the skills, resources and greater self awareness to achieve their desired goals. In order for therapy to be effective, I believe a felt sense of connection, safety, and respect are essential ingredients for my clients.
