I enjoy working with adults and older adolescents who are motivated to make changes and improve their symptoms. Frequently my patients work on issues of anxiety, depression, marital difficulty, coping with illnesses of all types, infertility, anger, stress, and smoking cessation. Another important aspect of my practice is psychological testing. I commonly assess intelligence, personality, mental disability, memory, ADHD, learning disorders, and cognitive function using psychological tests (ages 8 to 75).
My approaches to treatment tend to be cognitive-behavioral. It is important that my clients work outside sessions to learn new skills to help them improve themselves and their problems. I help patients to establish and work toward specific goals. Treatment is structured, but the environment during sessions is relaxed.
Brentwood Clinical Psychology is conveniently located by I-65 and Old Hickory Blvd. Currently accepting new patients. Office hours: 8 to 3pm on Mondays, 8 to 7pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, 8 to 5pm on Fridays.
