About me

Hello: I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist with 35+ years of clinical experience. Consequently I have a number of areas of interest and expertise that include: mental health, substance use disorders, grief and loss, spectrum disorders, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, relational issues and family therapy. I describe myself as a classically trained therapist with an eclectic tool box. Although I have worked extensively in the public sector, I received all of my clinical supervision for my license in private practice. I enjoy working with people who are seeking knowledge and self-improvement; however, I can work with just about anyone any point in their personal journey. My orientation is brief solution-focused therapy, but I have worked with individuals with challenging issues that require more time. I enjoy meeting new people and learning new things. I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
