I am a licensed psychologist who is creative, compassionate, competent, and caring. You are looking to work with a therapist who can identify in you specific issues which cause and perpetuate problematic patterns of behavior and thinking. Together we will tailor a treatment approach which will uniquely address your concerns. I work with those who have experienced anxiety, depression, eating disorders, trauma, substance abuse, anger, addictions, intrusive thoughts, compulsions, dissociation, and health problems. Whether you are looking for family therapy, couples therapy, or individual therapy, I look forward to helping you identify and accomplish your goals.
Having worked with patients from age 5 to 105, I have extensive experience and training working with children, families, and couples. As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I have specialized education and training in the treatment of anxiety, survivors of sexual abuse, and elder populations.
Patients in Hernando and Pasco Counties can be seen at my offices, or in certain circumstances, in their homes. Patients are seen from surrounding areas including Hudson, Land O' Lakes, San Antonio, Port Richey, New Port Richey, Wesley Chapel, Lutz, Homassassa, and Inverness.
