I have maintained a psychotherapy practice for 30 years, mainly through personal referral. This has given me the opportunity to work with many types of problems in several treatment modalities. A strength I bring to my practice is availability to identify and communicate the theme running through the difficulty in a way that allows the client to grasp, and then work on it. I am able to adjust my style and pace to the client. People tend to feel safe in their work with me and empowered to understand change. I have access to psychiatric services at my site.
