Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I beena practitioner since 1988. Over the last 22 years of practice, my approach to therapy has become very eclectic. I have come to understand that no one style can possbily meet the needs of everyone that comes to me for assistance. However, the one variable that is always necessary for a successful therapeutic experience is the positive and trusting bond that is formed between myself and those I work with. Having been on both sides of the therapeutic process many tmimes, I understand that sharing intimate details and/or painful life issues is extremely difficult and must be done within the context of a safe and caring relationship. I also have a strong faith in human potential, but understand that people (me included) tend to limit that potential simply through faulty thought processes. These self-limiting thoughts are generally based on negative childhood conditioning and bear very little reality to the individual's true psychological and spiritual potential. My areas of specialty include addictive disorders and related relational concerns, trauma, isues related to a dual diagnosis and autistic spectrum disorders.
