Professional Objectives
I am a Psychologist and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor – Supervisor and have been working with individuals of all ages, couples and families since 1994. My combined experiences of working in the community with children and adolescents, my current focus on outpatient treatment of adults and adolescents in combination with my graduate background in gerontology (the study of aging) and doctoral focus on trauma treatment has given me the opportunity to work with people from 5 to 85 years in age. I currently work with adult and adolescent clients dealing with PTSD, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma symptoms, spectrum disorders, aging issues, grieving, obesity and any relational discord issues whether it is individuals, family or couples counseling.
I do not discriminate in any fashion due to religion, race, orientation or well, anything really. Come as you are and we will address your concerns and hopes for your future in a proactive, health oriented way. I genuinely look forward to meeting you and planning out your treatment options and road to health and happiness.

Theoretical Orientation
While I see the advantages of focusing on behavior and thoughts – the CBT way – sometimes changing our attitude, mindset or a habit is simply not enough. There are times in life when having someone to walk beside you in the most challenging parts of the journey is a source of comfort and strength.
While I do not focus on the spiritual without my client requesting that aspect be focused on, I do feel that the therapeutic relationship is sacred and recognize what an honor it is to have someone share his or her story with me. I strive to honor that trust with thoughtful, educated, empirically based therapeutic interventions that focus on healing, health and wellness across all the facets of life. Holistic treatment: body, mind and spirit are all aspects of treatment that I am open to when working with my clients according to their needs and goals. I have found in trauma treatment study, training and treatment that EMDR is an effective and optimal option for addressing symptoms related to trauma be it current or historic and do offer this intervention if it is deemed appropriate.
