Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Greetings. I am an ex litigation attorney who gave up that warm, fuzzy pursuit to become a psychotherapist. Dealing with a high-pressure, legal career forced me to become an expert in stress reduction. I also specialize in working with depressed clients, anxious clients, trauma victims and substance abusers. I work with individuals, couples and families. I addition to my years of experience in private practice, I also spent almost three years as the Director of Adult Psychotherapy Services at a community mental health center. I've worked with clients from diverse backgrounds of all kinds. Through a combination of empathetic listening, analysis and interventions, I assist my clients in discovering and overcoming the blocks in their lives. To me, successful therapy is that which helps a person to feel vibrant and self-expressed both individually and relationally.
