My practice offers a broad spectrum of services which includes providing long/short term individual (children, adolescents, adults), marital and family psychotherapy. I collaborate with psychiatrists, neurologists, school officials and attorneys to coordinate care and ensure that each client receives the most effective and appropriate treatment. An initial mental health assessment and psychosocial history is completed with the client to determine how their needs will best be met. I am trained in several types of treatment modalities.
Therapy is a partnership, and therefore I utilize an individualized approach with each client, to determine which type of treatment plan will most effectively address and meet their specific therapeutic needs. Treatment plans are developed with client participation and feedback. All is done in a safe and comfortable environment
