I believe that each individual deserves the right to a good therapeutic relationship that recognizes every individual as a person worthy of respect and a caring, competent therapist.
I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been working in the mental health industry for 20+ years. I specialize in the treatment of substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship and eating disorder issues. I have a diverse professional background, including community mental health, residential treatment, independent counseling groups and private practice.
My years of experience as a psychotherapist confirm my belief in the power and possibility of change. I have dedicated my practice to helping children, adolescents and adults transform their lives. I work with individuals from many backgrounds on a variety of issues and provide a safe, caring environment for my clients so they feel comfortable discussing their thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. I approach therapy with warmth, attentive listening and humor.
My objective is to help my clients to overcome barriers to their fundamental happiness. I also am fairly direct and get to the heart of the matter quickly, addressing not only the problem, but also the factors that contribute to it. My thorough, comprehensive approach can help you build a deeper understanding of where you are now so that you can make lasting, positive changes. My goal is to help you develop the tools necessary to address your own problems and live a happier, more fulfilling life.
I have a positive approach to treatment. In sessions, I will focus on your resources and strengths to bring about change that can improve your relationship with yourself and others and ultimately lead to a more satisfying life. I will tailor treatment to your unique situation and personality so that I can offer the guidance and support that you need.
My practice is solution-focused, using cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical therapy, family systems and psychodynamic techniques. When appropriate, I will also use powerful therapies, such as EMDR, to provide for faster resolution and relief. If you are interested in moving beyond the traditional office setting, I offer walk and talk therapy as well. Together, we will set treatment goals that can help you heal emotional wounds that – no matter how old – may be wreaking havoc in your life today. With my help and support, you can develop the tools necessary to address your own problems and live a happier, more fulfilling life. If you’re looking for extra guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you as you achieve your goals.
Let’s join together and get your life on the track you desire and deserve. I invite you to call 561-441-9933 for a free phone consultation or email me if I can be of assistance to you.
