Biography: I deeply believe that each and every human being has the potential to transform in a powerful way—no matter their past, their circumstances, or current challenges. I am naturally intrigued by your story and am passionate in my approach to have you reach beyond your goals, beyond your pain, and beyond what seems possible. The great thing about counseling, is that it has been scientifically proven to work over and over again. In fact, recent research in neurology has shown positive changes in the brain during and post counseling. From helping high achievers overcome barriers to growth to helping those suffering from anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction and other maladies to have a higher quality of life and even recover completely. No matter what is going on in your life, I have over a decade of clinical experience, and the tools, skills and expertise to help you get the results you desire. I draw upon your inner strength, set goals with you, work with you to build new skills, help you to remove barriers, and utilize highly specialized techniques to help you get free of what is holding you back in the present and holding you down from your past. I am extremely conscientious and therefore, if I did not specialize in what you are dealing with, I will refer you to a trusted colleague immediately. I have consistently expanded my knowledge base since obtaining my Master’s degree through independent study, consultation, and learning from some of the greats in the field of psychology, attending lectures and trainings from: Dr. Robert J. Meyers, Dr. Francine Shapiro, Dr. Dan Siegel, Dr. James Hillman, Dr. Scott Miller, Bill O’ Hanlon, Jack Kornfield, Dr. Irvin Yalom, Dr. Erving Polster, Dr. David Burns, Dr. Aaron Beck, Dr. Donald Meichenbaum, Dr. Salvador Minuchin, Dr. Jeffery Kottler, Mike Speakman (Founder of PAL), and Kathleen Martin, LCSW, among others. Let’s work together to achieve your goals.
