I have been working in the field of clinical social work for over 30 years.
Working in both clinic and private practice settings, I have worked with
children, adolescents and adults, utilizing reality-oriented, psychodynamic,
cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and solution focused brief therapy, treatment approaches.
It is my experience that the best results come when a therapist and client work as a team, focusing on specific goals. It is the therapeutic alliance that yields healing and movement towards accomplishing goals. It is essential that you find a psychotherapist with whom you feel comfortable discussing the important details of your life.
