At this point in my career I love to see challenging clients. Sometimes that could mean a client who has seen several other therapists who haven't been able to help. It might mean a client with a myriad of problems, complex or unusual problems, or a simple problem in a client who has trouble connecting/trusting. A special area of interest is the use of hypnosis, which often speeds progress. Having been in practice over 30 years, I bring a wealth of professional and personal experience to bear.
Feedback solicited from clients, suggests they value the warmth, empathy, professionalism, and support. I work with all ages and accept all the regional insurances (TriCare, Optima, Anthem/Trigon, Value Options, etc., as well as many EAP's). Send me an email if you are calling to schedule, for preferential scheduling.
I lead a group for those with Anxiety difficulties. I delight in seeing children (age 2 and older) and their families and often diagnose and treat ADHD. I especially enjoy adult work with Anxiety and trauma. The Virginia Beach office is new, comfortable and very nicely appointed.
