Dear client, I am here to help you gain insight and find the skills to unblock whatever barriers are preventing you from enjoying the success and happiness you deserve.
Sometimes it takes a professional to help us decrease anxiety and depression.I specialize in alcohol/drug abuse and adolescents at risk. I can teach you self-hypnosis and deep relaxation techniques. With my research in the area of Step Families I have learned ways of increasing skills of adjustment when new families are created.
Unique to my practice is my research in the area of Step Families including a how-to-book called "Stepping" in which one may find interesting ways of coping and then thriving in a blended family situation.
