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

One of the most impactful lessons learned is twofold. First, with individuals, never assume anything. Two, every situation and every person we meet can teach us something about life., our job and even about ourselves..

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Success in therapy begins with the honest commitment to recognize what one is dealing with, be open to the tools to manage it and be able to demonstrate it by making appropriate and healthy decisions. One should have the ability to verbalize all thoughts and feelings where appropriate. One must not continue to take the same path and expect to end up in a different place. The person should have a better ability to be aware of all of her/his thoughts and feelings, be able to verbalize them when appropriate and necessary and make good decisions. People should also have an ability to manage depressed feelings, anxiety and day to day stress and conflicts. Be happy.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

The key component is having the therapeutic connection between therapist and client. No matter how well a therapist is trained or what degree(s) is held, there must be an empathic connection understanding of the person and the uniqueness that an individual brings to the therapy . The therapist must be able to walk in the client's shoes for successful treatment. The client should feel that the therapist is not only professionally prepared , but also has an empathic appreciation of the person in therapy.

Work History

In my 20 plus years of experience, I have been fortunate enough to have worked in a number of capacities that have strengthened my ability to work as a therapist treating adults and children. My background includes being the clinical director of a small mental health practice, clinical director for a substance abuse facility, consultant for a child care business operating in five states and as a supervising and training analyst. for candidates seeking certification as a psychoanalyst. Through this work history I have had exposure to many different styles and treatment modalities, not only psychoanalysis. I have been able to incorporate these experiences in to my treatment modality.
