I am an advanced practice behavioral health practitioner who specializes in finding solutions for complex and challenging personal and interpersonal situations, where many years of experience are needed to arrive at an optimal outcome.

I have over 40 years' post-graduate psychotherapy experience working with children, adolescents, adults, families and groups struggling with a variety of problems, including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relationship issues, childhood trauma, workplace stress, disability, crime victims and veteran's issues. Over the years my career has included classroom instruction in elementary, secondary and higher education settings, with a particular emphasis on identifying barriers to successful learning and special education resources. I have co-authored 2 published books, with an emphasis on identifying and addressing trauma-related behaviors in classroom settings. My behavioral health experiences have included working for 3 managed care organizations, managing behavioral health care for active duty and retired military and their families, disabled and senior populations as well as company employees and their families. I have spent many years working in the field of substance abuse at all levels of care as well as providing assessment and consultation to Employee Assistance Programs and the federal Department of Transportation as a SAP (Substance Abuse Professional). Interspersed with all of these experiences, I have maintained a solo private practice since 1984, which has provided the greatest opportunity for direct care and maintaining the highest level of professional training and development as well as implementing the most current standards of care and research-based treatments. I would welcome the opportunity to assist anyone who might benefit from the many years of skills and experience that I can provide.
