I have been a professional in the mental health field since 1978, first as a Psychiatric Nurse, later as a Family Therapist, and for the last twenty-seven years as a Licensed Psychologist.  I have a broad background and have worked with a variety of emotional/behavioral issues. Over the years I have assisted individuals, couples and families in their healing process.  I am repeatedly impressed by the resilience of human beings. In my work I focus on the strengths of my clients, as well as journeying with them through their difficulties.  

The relationship between a client and therapist is an important factor in the success of therapy. The decision to contact a therapist is not an easy one. Choosing a therapist can be confusing.

Whether a referral comes from a friend, physician, or insurance carrier, it is important to determine for yourself if a therapist meets your needs and is properly qualified to help you. Because you should feel comfortable with your therapist, it is a good idea to interview several before making your final selection. The following suggestions will help you choose the best therapist. Be sure the therapist:
  •             Has experience in your specific interests or problem
  •             Has proper professional training, credentials, and licensure.
  •             Has good standing in his/her professional organization.

   The decision to participate in therapy is important and can change your life in many positive ways.
