I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker and Certified Flower Essence Practitioner. I provide individual, family and couples therapy to children, adolescents and adults. For over 20 years, I have helped people resolve their difficulties with regard to: grief and loss, struggles in their relationships, abuse/trauma related issues, eating disorders, substance abuse and other addictions, behavioral problems, self esteem, anxiety and depression.
My philosophy focuses on helping you to heal at the root of your problem so that you can live free from your difficulties. I have used my approach for over 20 years to help facilitate healing and create lasting change in the lives of my clients, my children, and myself. My philosophy focuses on how our sense of self is formed in our early attachments. The most valuable lesson you could be taught is how you process your environment from the time you are a small child. Your experience and perception of the experience both influence how you relate to everyone and everything throughout life. To navigate your life, it is important to be educated about this and other underlying psychological principals. The more knowledge you have about any subject, the more self-assured you feel. Likewise, you need to understand yourself to be more successful in life.
No matter what the situation is, I believe people have a natural tendency to heal. Throughout the therapeutic process, you come to see your struggles as opportunities for personal growth. Seeing that every person and situation is different, I use a variety of approaches to help facilitate healing, including the use of cognitive, behavioral, emotional and energy healing techniques. No matter which approach works best, I believe the way healing begins to take place is by establishing a trusting relationship with you and by encouraging you to trust and believe in yourself.
