As a social worker I take a hollistic approach to helping clients with a primary focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. After a 40 year career in both the health and mental health fields I now exclusively devote my time to a private practice helping people with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and various mental health issues. I work with clients with substance abuse issues who are already involved in a recovery program. I am noted for having a warm and supportive approach and believe that humor is a part of healing.
I have had extended training at the Albert Ellis Institute in Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT). I also draw from a variety of other modalities based on the needs of the client. I do use hypnosis for specific symptoms and issues. I do not use hypnosis for past life regression.
My practice tends to run full and I do give preference to former patients wanting to return to psychotherapy. It is possible that at the time of the call my practice has no openings. It is best to contact me via email. If my practice if full I will still respond to your email, sometimes with suggestions of other alternatives.
