I help children, teens and adults who are experiencing anxiety or worry. These disorders can take many forms like panic, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, separation anxiety, health anxiety, specific fears and PTSD. Receive cognitve and exposure therapies to learn how to manage negative thinking, unpleasant internal sensations, and safety seeking behaviors. I also can effectively help you if you are experiencing depression, anger, and, with difficulty paying attention. These issues cause significant problems with your ability to be productive, have healthy relationships and to enjoy your life. Shift from being feeling directed to more purpose-centered in how you approach your life.
I listen and relate to all of my clients, with compassion. Expect to receive a thorough initial evaluation, which may include psychological testing, to get the most accurate diagnosis and to form the most effective treatment plan. I also provide marital and family therapy. In addition, I have written handouts to guide you between sessions.
I'm a clincal psychologist and I have received extensive training in the latest, research supported treatments. I can evaluate both children and/or adults for ADD. Parent training and school consultations are also provided. See my website for the full range of mental health services, including medication management, provided at my office location.
