I treat psychological or relationship pain by taking a results-oriented approach. When someone suffers from a medical disorder, the doctor does a comprehensive assessment of the problem in order to come up with a correct diagnosis. If the diagnosis is incorrect, treatment will lead to ongoing wasted time. I am a skilled diagnostician who has had referrals from physicians throughout the years for patients who were non-responsive to treatment. Once correctly diagnosed, I develop a treatment plan then we work together to accomplish goals so you can be free from the psychological anguish that led you to seek help.
Specialties include working with marriage / couples issues (utilizing psychological assessments to deepen relational insight) along with adolescents & adults suffering from trauma, loss, grief or any other emotional pain requiring results-oriented, intensive therapy. Expertise in: loss by Suicide or Homicide; Trauma caused by Abuse; PTSD; Attachment Issues; Depression; Family Conflict; Executive Coaching and Forensics.
Before becoming a Psychologist, I spent my career in private industry thus I am extremely focused on achieving effective results in the treatment of psychological disorders. For someone to have psychological pain requiring endless therapy = malpractice from my perspective. Effective treatment leads to emotional health so one can move beyond therapy.
