ABOUT ME

I have been a social worker since 1997 and an outpatient therapist since 2004 and specializing in anxiety since 2012.  Working with people as they address serious matters is the most gratifying aspect of my career as a social worker. 

I have worked with individuals, couples and families and facilitated groups in mental health clinics, therapeutic day schools and crisis counseling agencies .  My other areas of expertise are depression, trauma, ADHD, anger and men’s relationship issues. 

My treatment philosophy is to connect with patients, help them understand the primary issues (temperament, diagnosis, lifestyle, etc.) that are contributing to their strife, and provide supportive feedback and practical and effective options for people to improve their lives.  My patients do well, even those who have languished in treatment for decades. 

One of my favorites quotes is by Carl Jung,:

“We don't so much solve our problems as we outgrow them. We add capacities and experiences that eventually make us bigger than the problems.”
