Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Enjoying 24 years of professional practice and being a Director of a licensed out-patient mental health clinic for many years I am skilled at treating clients suffering with a wide variety of symptoms and disorders. I use a holistic approach in treatment and use a variety of therapeutic techniques based on my client's needs. I have found that a combination of techniques including those from cognitive behavioral therapy, the object relations model and the psycho-dynamic model work exceptionally well with clients suffering from anxiety and depression. I am a certified Hypnotherapist and clients have found hypnotherapy as a positive addition to their therapy. Hypnotherapy can be a helpful adjunct in improving self-esteem, gaining fulfillment in one's career and personal relationships. Clients have also found hypnotherapy as a highly effective method in treating addictive disorders including smoking and overeating. I also have enjoyed many years of helping couples considering divorce heal their marriages. By honestly exploring their expectations, needs and feelings in a safe and nurturing therapeutic environment, many couples have not only decided to stay married but celebrate the happiness they experience in their marriages on a daily basis. Providing systemic family therapy is also a passion of mine. I believe that when one family member is in pain the whole family is suffering. My clients have reported a rapid relief from their suffering while in family therapy.
