My Approach to Helping
I specialize in womens' issues and am familiar with the struggles and issues of gay and lesbian individuals. I work well with adolescents who have social phobias. I have been in practice for over forty years and have worked successfully with both adolescents and adults of all religions and races. I have experience with, and am comfortable with, helping people learn how to deal with and resolve issues of anger, as well as to develop self confidence and self esteem.
I teach individuals and couples constructive means of expression and of communicating feelings without criticism or anger.
I give parents tools to positively set limits with children and adolescents to avoid conflicts and acting out, oppositional behavior.
I help adolescents and adults to manage anger, anxiety and depression through cognitive and behavioral techniques.
I have experience in working with adolescents and adults with addictions, including alcohol, drugs and eating disorders.
