Psychological Evaluations and Psychotherapy
Since 1985, I have treated children, adolescents, couples, families, and adults suffering from ADHD, anxiety, depression, anger, and communication problems. I utilize a therapy dog to help children communicate more effectively in treatment.
I specialize in completing comprehensive psychological evaluations for ADHD, complex depression, anxiety, and PTSD cases, as well as learning difficulties and employment problems.
I treat individuals and families having difficulties with marital and parenting challenges, blended family issues, chronic illness, substance abuse, school, and work-related problems.
When I work with adults, my approach emphasizes acceptance work and finding balance, meaning, and fulfillment in relationships and careers. My treatment focuses on assisting individuals as they strive to achieve optimal physical and emotional health.
I have advanced training in hypnosis, meditation instruction, visualization, and deep relaxation techniques that effectively treat anxiety, PTSD, depression, and ADHD. Clients quickly gain the skills to practice these techniques at home. I also have extensive expertise providing couples therapy, emphasizing empathic communication, and acceptance work.
