My Approach to Helping
I believe that many of the problems individuals face can be worked through by gaining increased insight and knowledge about oneself. I also believe individuals heal themselves and often just need an objective, caring presence to help them take the first step. I specialize in both therapy and psychological assessment and frequently work with psychiatrists, primary care physicians, OBGYNs, and other physicians in the collaborative treatment of patients.

Iam also a certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition (SFN), and a Nationally Board-Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (NBCCH). My training focused on both inpatient and outpatient treatment, and have pursued a variety of supplementary training under some of the leading experts in the field. I have taught at both undergraduate and graduate levels and has presented workshops on Bipolar and Borderline Disorders, Adult Children of Alcoholics, and on helping children cope with divorce.
