I have worked in Health care for over 40 years
I am a highly skilled, sensitive and compassionate life coach and licensed counseling psychotherapist dedicated to providing exceptional care and effective treatment plans for adults and emergency personnel experiencing mental and emotional health issues. I specialize in grief, anger, anxiety and depression and am experienced in mood disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and other crisis as a result of mental or physical ailments.
I am an effective listener, motivator, communicator and advocate. One of my primary objectives is to help my clients reach a greater understanding of themselves in a safe, confidential and supportive environment.
It goes without saying that all of my clients are treated with respect, compassion and mindfulness. In return they greatly value a counselor who can listen with a vested interest and without judgement or misconception.
Although counseling is not an exact science, I believe that deep and lasting change is possible at any stage of life. People are infinitely complex beings, each requiring a personalized approach. To aid in client recovery, I use a spectrum of innovative, evidence-based approaches. I also encourage you to assume a proactive role in the creation of your own individualized treatment plan.
This type of doctor/client collaboration empowers you to make personal choices regarding your own heath and treatment. Through ongoing guidance and encouragement, you will develop the necessary skills and insights to reach and maintain hard-won goals.
The work can be frustrating, challenging, and rewarding all at the same time. However, empowering you to get well and successfully manage your own lives is extraordinarily rewarding for me as well.
