Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I currently volunteer my time for our small Community Counseling Center, where I supervise interns/trainees and see folks for low fees. I also am the Clinical Director for our local Child Development Resource Center, which is a therapeutic Pre-school Program. I also have a small private practice for folks who need to continue beyond the 10 sessions that the Counseling center provides and also accept private referrals. I've worked for County Mental Health, Youth Services, in group homes, with depression, suicidality and run drug and alcohol programs. I've done just about everything there is to do, but my first love is therapy. I have specialties in chronic pain issues, LGBT issues, sexual abuse issues, domestic violence, parenting, play therapy, PTSD, among many others. I have been a supervisor for over 20 years and enjoy growing new therapists. The most important aspect of therapy is the fit between myself & the client, I always make this my first priority. If the fit isn't right, I'll refer someone out to get what they need.
