I have been a professional LMFT since 1975 and founded the Self-Awareness Institute in 1983. In addition to providing therapy for individuals, couples, marraiges, teenagers,and children, I conduct a treatment/counseling program over a weekend for individuals, couples/marriages and teenagers.
In 1983 I founded this 'one-of-a-kind' alternative mental health service and treatment/counseling program called 'The Self-Awareness Weekend (Marathon)'. Check our web site www.selfawarenessweekend.
com for more information.
I have extensive experience in working with anger issues, anxiety, addictions, abuse of any kind in childhood or adulthood, depression, grief, stress, relationship issues, couple/marrige counseling, domestic violence and unresolved childhood issues.
The purpose and theme of my work is much more than 'talk therapy'. I support clients in experiencing and releasing repressed feelings, making new life-changing decisions, and creating self-fulfilling behaviors. My intention is to be effective in creating life-changing results in a short period of time.
I am comfortable in working with any type of crisis situations mainly due to my work as a nurse. And, my nursing background supports me in bringing a holistic approach to my psychotherapy work.
