I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been working in the field for over 30 years. In my career I have worked in many different settings with many different populations. I have come to believe that most of us struggle in life due to our environment not fitting us. We do also have a history and that is relevant and critical to where we are at this point in our lives. How we navigate the world we find ourselves in at the present is critical. To be plain we all need to understand our nature. Each one of us has strengths and weaknesses. Depending on the setting sometimes what is a strength in one area becomes a weakness in another. And of course the reverse is also true. I jokingly tell people that we all need to figure out what is our ice cream flavor. I see no reason to contribute to peoples feelings that they have something wrong with them. Or that they are not normal. We simply are healthy in our lives or we feel unhealthy in our own lives. My goal is to help people figure out what will make them healthy. Most answers are right in front of us and they make sense when someone help us see them.
My style is straight forward, but hopefully not rude or cruel. I strive to help everyone feel hopeful and empowered. I will explain in as much detail as desired about why I think the way I do about any issue. People want to feel progress so I attempt to help them move forward as quickly as possible. There is no magic. If whatever i say doesn't make sense then challenge me. My goal is to simple help you meet your goal.
My primary intervention style is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I borrow from many other styles when i feel it is appropriate, but I find that CBT is the most logical framework to best help people.
My areas of expertise:
Other areas of experience include:
