Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
Employee Assistance Counseling
I have over 30 years' experience helping people gain relief from painful emotional symptoms and improve their personal relationships, become more productive at work, and take greater pleasure from life. I believe it is important to have a safe and private environment to talk things over and feel understood as a unique individual, in order to change lifelong ways of coping that haven't been working. I help in understanding feelings and behaviors that don't make sense and to prevent the past from interfering in the present. Gaining greater control over your life helps replace self-destructive patterns of behavior with those that are more satisfying.
After a few initial meetings, I make recommendations about treatment options, and we discuss the most useful way to proceed. You may wish to focus on gaining insight into impediments and inhibitions that have interfered with reaching life goals, or we may decide to work toward practical solutions to problems.
I place a priority on integrity and adhering to the highest professional ethical standards. Confidentiality and respect for the whole person are the underpinnings of my work and I provide a caring and supportive environment, while being open to a broad range of feelings, positive as well as negative.
