I received a PhD in Counseling Psychology in 1988. My clinical experience has included work in psychiatric hospitals, managed care agencies and private practice. I see adults individually and in marriage/relationship counseling. My clients have, in addition to other problems, presented with depression, anxiety, interpersonal issues, stress, mid and later life adjustment, grief, life plan development, and self esteem.
I believe counseling happens best on a level playing field. The participants share ideas and discover solutions. There is cooperation, synergy and mutuality of purpose. We begin by mapping what is causing your problem, or areas you want to enhance in your life. Next, we look at psychological and behavioral change. What changes are indicated and how are they best achieved? This part is very difficult on our own, especially if we are dealing with problems. Finally, we look at how to establish and maintain change .
If you would like us to talk, please proceed with an appointment. I look forward to hearing from you. Currently you can schedule on Thurs, Fri, or Sat. Around the first of December I will be full time with BetterHelp. I check messages in the morning and evening. I will respond within 24 hours. Thanks...
