I have a background as a RN, MSW, ACSW in Social Work and am a graduate of a 4 year institute program in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I also have a diploma from the Barbara Brennan School of Healing Science, a certified college program in Florida. I have been a psychotherapist and working in private practice for over 30 years. My areas of expertise focus on adults who have issues relating to low self-esteem, depression, anger, anxiety, job goals, spiritual concerns, relationship problems, sexuality and mood swings. I also have many years of experience in working with marital conflict, couples with infidelity, difficulty communicating, lack of intimacy and parenting issues that interfere with the marital relationship. As part of the therapy work I have experience suggesting meditation, imagery, relaxation and breathing techniques as an aid to helping gain self-awareness and understanding. These alternatives can also help clients in between sessions to have improved self management over various changes in moods.
My goal is to listen and use all of my experience and skills while joining in partnership with my clients to achieve their desired outcome.
