I try and find the best treatment approach to suit each patient; I trained in individual therapy, psychoanalytic orientation, as well as addictions, rst alcohol drug treatment program for Kaiser Permanente in Northern California and was the chief for many years. I work with adults, children, and adolescence.

I trained in psychoanalytic and developmental psychotherapy at Smith College in a post master’s two year intensive program, I also completed a BCD US Board after my LCSW, and later a PhD in clinical psychology. I use a combination of treatment modality techniques to fit the best needs of my patients.

I have a bioscience view of patients, using my strong understanding of clinical medicine, and the psycho-social aspects of listening and talking with my patients to help them see how their experiences from the past help shape much of how they experience the present. Through taking a history from my patient’s background, I can help them relate their experiences from the past to events in the present. We use problem solving techniques, find better compromises to conflictual situations, and thus better ways to deal with the overall choices we make in our lives.
