Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
Individual growth and development
TAKE BACK CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE! Are you feeling stuck or unhappy? Angry? Frustrated? Need to get your thoughts straight? Overwhelmed by life stresses? Are you a couple who really want to stay together but counseling has failed you? Still arguing over the same issues or afraid to bring them up to avoid conflict? These are problems that an be solved and with my 30 years of counseling and life experiences I can help you to find your way to get back to the love that is buried under life stresses by someone who finally "gets you.". In the beginning everything was so easy. Than hurt feelings, misunderstandings, resentments and problems with communication. Is it time to find new solutions to old problems?
Have you suffered a trauma or a loss? Are you stuck there? Do you want to work thru the suffering? Do you want to further your own growth and development? Do you have difficulty identifying, expressing and understanding your own feelings and those close to you? Is it time to build your self confidence and self- esteem?
Spend your money wisely. Invest in a therapist who can provide positive outcomes that meet your expectations, needs and wants for you. Avoiding managed care ensures you greater privacy and greater control without documentation.
Don't know where to turn? Try me. I have been a therapist for 30 years. Clients are comfortable discussing their problems because of my interactive and non-judgmental style. If you have more questions for me after you read this profile, I would be delighted to hear from you.Taking the first step toward getting help is often the most difficult --please don't hesitate to call or e-mail.
