As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-R) in private practice for over thirty years I work with individuals and couples using Emotionally Focused Therapy and a person-centered approach. Areas of focus include but not limited to: Relational Issues, Depression and Anxiety, Feelings of Being Stuck and Unable to Move on in Life, and Grief and Loss.
My treatment philosophy places an emphasis on helping clients to use their own wisdom in solving problems. I take cues from clients as to where they want to go, and recognize that they may well know best how to get there.
Through empathetic listening I encourage and facilitate clients to cut through their confusion to arrive at a new place of knowing and meaning. Our goal is to understand what is pressing for acknowledgement and to create the space for it to emerge and for the client to realize what is the next step for them
I pride myself on getting back to people promptly, keeping all communications confidential and making every effort to accommodate my client’s schedules.
