"I like to think of myself as a seasoned clinician who has adapted and adjusted to the changing times, who welcomes adults and gender questioning people. I have evolved my craft toward a mindfully oriented practice which I combine with cognitive, behavioral, insight and DBT techniques. My work supports adults going through their journey of radical acceptance focusing on those life changing events which can cause emotional dysregulation. Whether the emotional roller coaster is based on abandonment, trauma, inability to emotional attach/ detach to heath relationships, aging, divorce, affairs, or grief resulting in phobias, fears, anxieties or depression. I believe I can be your guide, coach and mentor through this process of healing. ""You can't change what you do not acknowledge."" I believe dysfunctional thoughts, feelings, actions and urges can be rewired by practicing positive reinforcement fostering new learning and healthy skills. I take my education/training serious as well as my inclusive personal and profession practice. I read at least one book a month; contribute my written comments to the Times Herald Record column called "Therapist by Day."
