About My Clients
In addition to the many problems that complicate our daily lives such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, patients come to me with complex relationship issues including marital distress, divorce recovery, verbal & emotional abuse, loss of child, parent, or spouse. The holistic approach that I use will address the root problem, not just the symptoms. I offer perspective on your experience, and provide clear, concise directions on meeting your treatment goals.
My Background and Approach
For many years, I worked at a large group practice in a major, urban city alongside primary care physicians, pediatricians, gynecologists, and emergency medicine. I worked with patients to provide a mental health perspective to their care. I was privileged to work with patients from a variety of backgrounds who had complex mental health disorders and presentations. I worked with patients of all ages. My experience has allowed me to become an expert in rapid assessment and specialize in most forms of mental illness. From this involvement I was able to provide immediate and constructive feedback to patients and see growth.
Why I am a Good Fit for You
When people feel “stuck” in their situation, it can create feelings of hopelessness. To address this, I utilize my understanding of neuropsychology. I consider patterns in your behavior and biological explanations when I address your symptoms. I deliver evidence-based techniques, including CBT, to help you make changes and ultimately feel better. Regardless of the specific issue, all patients have something in common: the desire to feel better. Maybe you want to improve your mood, control your thoughts, change your behavior, or have healthier relationships. Just like physical therapy, the goal is to support you with interventions so that ideally you would not need treatment anymore. Treatment can be brief. For some people it is learning why they feel the way they do. For others, it is about learning and practicing new skills. However, sometimes our lives become so chaotic we need longer support through the storm. I will support whatever path to wellness you choose.
