During the first appointment, I always ask, "What prompted you to pick up the phone and make this appointment? Usually there is some emotional pain which you want to get rid of. As a therapist, that is what you will use me for. You will use my education, training and most importantly my many years of experience and what others have found to work. My philosophy is very grounded in my Social Work education and I strive to "meet clients where they are". I am a firm believer that most folks know what needs to be done , they just need guidance and support while doing it. "Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work." - Albert Schweitzer

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have many years working with children and adolescents.
Also, I worked with Hospice for 8 yrs and received extensive grief training. I have learned to apply this training to many areas of my practice, such as divorce, empty nest and many other transitions we go through that knowing how to grieve is beneficial.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Many times people present to my practice who have been clinically depressed for many months, but due to the stigma attached to anti-depressants and depression viewed as a choice, they have avoided coming to therapy. Upon assessment, education about the physical components of depression and providing hope through therapy and possible referral for medication, many folks are leave my office feeling less depressed.
