I am a goal directed, solution focused, results oriented psychotherapist with a brief-time-limited emphasis. I have twenty years experience working in a variety of settings including inpatient psychiatric work, chemical dependency outpatient rehabilitation and outpatient mental health.
I have also spent over 13 years working in administrative capacities with several large and small insurance companies in the behavioral manage care industry. With that experience I work well in collaboration with insurance companies in providing my clients with effective care. I believe I have a good understanding of both the clinical aspects of treatment as well as the administrative dynamics.
Much of my career has been devoted to the work of mandated domestic/anger issues (this is not domestic prevention) in terms of understanding, controlling, and managing the emotion of anger. In that context I devote a considerable amount of my time to working with men in a variety of relationships. However, I also work with women and relationship/anger issues. I have worked with many couples over the years of my practice and I find the work very enjoyable.
In addition I see many clients with a variety of issues, including, but not limited to: depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, and stress related adjustment reaction.
