My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 25 years experience in the Mental Health field. A graduate of Nova University, I have been both a counselor and an administrator in residential and outpatient treatment programs, served as the Employee Assistance Counselor for Federal agencies, and a therapist in psychotherapy practices in South Florida. With expertise in the treatment of mood disorders, women\'s issues, life cycle transitions and addictive disorders, I have worked with hundreds of clients who sought to improve the quality of their lives.
I am able to combine the principles and practices of psychology and ontology (Merriam Webster: \"a branch of metaphysics concerned with the nature and relations of being\" or as I define it, the study of our humanness and how to better manage it) Using those principles and practices, you and I will create an approach to your particular needs and goals.
I have enormous respect and admiration for the courage of my clients and their willingness to look at themselves and their lives, figure out what is missing, and create the changes needed to have a life they love. With an unshakeable belief in the human spirit and the power of transformation, I believe that anyone willing to do the work, will see the results worth the effort. I love what I do and consider it a privilege to participate in that process.
