AREAS OF SPECIALTY
My clinical experience includes working with children, adolescents, adults and families. In my clinical practice, I treat clients who are dealing with mood disorders, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, adjustment disorders, ADHD, employment issues, parenting issues, bipolar conditions, women's issues, chronic illness, change of life issues, loss and grief, spirituality, stress management, relationship isses, and medical conditions that are impacting one's mental health.
As both a Psychologist and a Registered Nurse, I see first hand the importance of treating the whole person with a mind-body perspective. This includes respecting the client's symptoms and gaining clarity for the appropriate treatment options. I utilize a supportive environment with clients that is helpful, but non judgmental and is focused on growth. This approach allows clients to achieve their goals and regain a sense of direction and purpose. One of my personal goals is to provide quality, effecitve, and efficient treatment to both reduce emotional pain and prompt optimal functioning for clients
