My Approach to Helping
I specialize in treating adolescents and college-aged students, as well as older adults with complex living issues. My job is to create a safe place where individuals and couples can explore current or long-standing problems and find realistic solutions. A significant part of this work involves carefully and mutually developing an appreciation of people\'s actual qualities and circumstances as the basis for realistic growth. I work with people in crisis or who sense they have patterns of living that could benefit from an experienced partner to help facilitate their desired change.
I have received training in motivational interviewing, solutions-focused therapy, trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy, descriptive psychology-informed psychotherapy and I specialize in treating depression and other mood disorders, anxiety and panic-related issues, ADHD and addictive disorders.
