I have been a have a psychiatric social worker for 41 years, working with children, adolescents and families. I have supervised staff social workers, graduate social work students and mental health interns and provided consultation tp peers. I have developed programs offering intensive wrap around services to children and families. I specialize in child, adolescent and family therapy, trauma, child and adult ADHD, parenting, and blended families.
I understand the ambivalence that comes with reaching out for help and work hard to establish a comfort level with our first contact. I consider this to be a mutual interview: do you think we can work together and do I believe I can help. My treatment approach is individualized to you; we establish goals based on your needs; there will be a clear understanding of when those goals have been achieved. We will celebrate your accomplishments and collaborate on revising our treatment plan when progress is not being made. I tailor my psychotherapeutic approach to your needs and always bring always unconditional acceptance, respect and empathy to our session. My range of practice includes REBT, psychodynamic, Trauma Focused CBT, and humanistic.
In conclusion, I count myself lucky to be doing what I consider my passion after 40+ years. My enthusiasm, for my work has never abated. You are not a case file, patient number or “my 2:00 appointment.” I will treat you the way I would want to be treated. This is my promise to you.
