I work best with clients seeking to define and engage with the issues that are hindering their ability to function well, be happy and healthy. I am a direct, but not a directive therapist. I believe that given the strategies and tools to navigate through difficult situations most people are capable of doing what is needed to live life to the fullest. That includes one of my favorite populations, teenagers. I also enjoy treating patients, persons who will likely be managing a psychiatric condition throughout their lifetime with a combination of medical management and psychotherapy.
My specialty is in the area of trauma, particularly trauma that leads to self-injurious behaviors, debilitating anxiety, or a pattern of failed relationships . I see a great many people in my practice who have learned to internalize the anger and helplessness caused by a life event.
I bring a strong clinical sense to my practice. I use research-based treatment protocols and work hard to stay up to date on what research offers the clinician. At the same time I am deeply empathetic to my clients and patients. They are each unique and special people.
