What is your style/approach to therapy?

I do CBT-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy- the way we think is the way we will act. I can't change you but i can educate you by telling you what helps others facing similiar issues.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

a lot of what my clients are dealing with, so have i; grief, disappointments, re-careering, military, depression, anxiety, OCD, poor sleep, anger, unhappy. but, from all this, "the glass is half full"; it's not over until it's over.!

Were there lessons in your professional or academic career that left an impression on you, and how has that informed your work today?

"How badly do you want it?!!!!" i wake up every day with another chance to do it better. Sometimes its chicken...sometimes it's feathers. Never give up--seek help- take the advice-it will get better.

Work History

after returning from military service, i was asked to run a suicide crisis hotline. that lead me to obtaining more education and training which led to other experiences- working at a psych hospital, a home for wards of the state; working 10 years helping people re-career; all the while, keeping a private practice seeing individuals. couples and groups.. I practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy -- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) helps you recognize negative or unhelpful thought and behavior patterns. CBT aims to help you identify and explore the ways your emotions and thoughts can affect your actions. Once you notice these patterns, you can begin learning to reframe your thoughts in a more positive and helpful way. CBT is largely based on the idea that your thoughts, emotions, and actions are connected. In other words, the way you think and feel about something can affect what you do. A key concept of CBT is that these thought and behavior patterns can be changed.
