Licensed Professional Counselor
Experience has shown me that emotional pain can be healed. Also, self-destructive behavioral patterns can be changed. Sometimes the process of healing and changing is longer than you want, but the payoff is greater than you can imagine.
I am a licensed professional counselor. For over 18 years, I’ve been helping clients to regain control over their feelings and behaviors. I have received specialized training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and in Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy. I have given professional workshops on Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I specialize in helping clients to recover from borderline personality and posttraumatic stress disorder and from the effects of childhood abuse and neglect. I also specialize in weight loss and recovery from unhealthy eating habits. I am familiar with the 12-step programs and SMART Recovery.
