I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with 31 years of experience in private practice. While my practice is generalized, I specialize in the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, anxiety disorders (including panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder) and depression for ages 13 to 85. I provide psychological and academic testing to objectively identify the presence of ADHD and/or a learning disability.
How do you work, and what is your approach to psychotherapy?
My approach to therapy begins with an accurate assessment and diagnosis (if applicable). With minors, family involvement is usually required. Following the assessment, a treatment plan is jointly formulated and agreed upon by the client and myself. I work within a brief therapy model whenever it is reasonable to do so. My approach ranges with the use of cognitive/behavioral therapy methods, Accelerated Resolution Therapy, visual imagery, hypnosis, emotional freedom techniques and other energy psychology approaches. I also provide parenting strategies, marital counseling and consultation with physicians, schools or the courts (if applicable). I am good-natured and non-dictatorial in my approach. Therapy is an experience of self-exploration, and I function as a guide in helping those who are motivated to succeed in accomplishing their own personal goals.
What kind of training and experience do you have?
I am a licensed psychologist with 31 years of experience working with a wide range of people, problems, and solutions. I have owned and operated Intense Outpatient Programs and Partial Hospitalization programs, have worked in private practice and in private psychiatric hospitals (on two occasions, once as a program director for the adolescent population and once as the program director on the adult unit for persons suffering from an anxiety disorder). I think that the breadth of my training and the wide variety of people with whom I have established helping relationships gives me a good basis for working with most problems.
I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Hillsdale College in Michigan and my Doctorate in clinical psychology from Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in Wheeling, Illinois. I have been in private practice in the state of Florida since 1990. If you want other specific details about my training and work experience, or if you are wondering about anything else that relates to my ability to work with you, please feel free to contact me by email or telephone.
What kinds of problems and concerns do you work with?
The problems and concerns that I work with range from ages 13 to 85. I am especially interested in helping identify and treat individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), PTSD, mood disorders and Learning Disabilities. My goal is to achieve an accurate diagnosis using objective psychological tests. In addition to identifying and treating ADHD, mood disorders and Learning Disabilities, I work actively with couples as well as adolescents and adults in individual counseling. I help individuals with mood disorders, relationship issues, trauma reactions, and sexual identity concerns.
