Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello, I have been providing psychotherapy with all ages and all different populations for almost thirty years. I truly have a gift of providing empathy and rapport and helping individuals acknowledge their pain and move toward solutions through personal and spiritual growth. I have had tremendous success in working with the spirited, strong willed child and adolescent in helping parents develop improved parenting skills and addressing conflict resolution within families. I also empower women and men to move from the role of a victim to a survivor, thriver role. I also specialize in relationship counseling, and issues pertaining to divorce. In addition, my practice targets women and men’s issues in healing childhood trauma. I want to congratulate you in taking the first step in taking this challenge in seeking psychotherapy. You are now opening the door for increased insight and personal growth. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with this journey.
