Clinical Psychology

Clinical Psychology:

I provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults and also perform psychological evaluations for mental health treatment plans. My clinical experience spans over 20 years.

I acquired my clinical skills in long-term and acute-care psychiatric settings, and honed them over a long career in private psychotherapeutic practice.

During that time, I have helped individuals suffering from a wide range of disorders from anxiety and depression, abuses from childhood, loss and mourning, post traumatic stress disorder, identity disorders, eating disorders, and women’s issues. As a writer and speaker, I have published articles on some of these topics in professional journals and have presented papers at state, national, and international conventions.

My psychotherapy treatment approach is psychodynamic and with the focus on helping people reach their goals and needs.

When should you seek psychotherapy?

  • If you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious
  • If you are having difficulty making decisions
  • If you are in an unfulfilling relationship that you do not know how to leave
  • If you feel stressed and afraid of “losing it”
