"I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20+ years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. I counsel individuals when they are facing difficulties related to anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and marital problems to name a few." I provide respectful, caring, and trusting treatment in a safe, comfortable environment. My areas of specialization include: depression, anxiety, substance abuse, separation/divorce issues and loss/ bereavement issues. Sometimes when we face difficult situations, we feel no one could understand. LET ME HELP! You are not ALONE!!!
I have completed the studies and qualifications to practice as a Certified Hypnotherapist by The International Hypnosis Federation and Institute of Hypnotherapy. The hypnotic state brings the subconscious to the forefront allowing to explore thoughts, feelings, and memories. Hypnosis has been effective in treating anxieties, depression, athletic/academic performance, weight loss and stopping smoking.
