My Approach to Helping
Born in some respects from my wartime Military experiences, as well as from an amazingly dedicated and compassionate mother who has dedicated her life to others, my early influences have created a passion in me to help others. When they share their experiences in treatment, I feel humbled and invigorated and truly where I am supposed to be.
My years of experience directing the largest State operated children's psychiatric outpatient program and supervising 70 professional staff have afforded me invaluable perspective as well. This exposure has also affords me extensive knowledge of community support systems, both Inpatient and Community based.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Psychotherapy can prove literally "life changing" in restoring participants to pre-crisis functioning. For those not in an acute "crisis", it can be invaluable in isolating and targeting stressors by utilizing personal/familial/friend supports as well as developing or enhancing copping mechanisms.
