I have over 20 years of research and clinical experience in working with individuals whose lives are impacted by mood disorders. Within the realm of mood disorders there are a multitude of life stressors and challenges that are often present. I enjoy working with my patients to help them manage and ideally overcome the symptoms of mood and anxiety disorders that have negatively impacted their lives. I primarily work with older adolescents, adults, and elder individuals, and I also work with couples and families.
In addition to mood disorders -- which might include chronic depression, major depression, or bipolar disorder -- I have experience working with individuals whose lives have been impacted by anxiety. I'm also experienced in working with individuals with a history of traumatic life events, including PTSD.
I tend to have long-term association with my patients who may complete a short-term of psychotherapy only to return at some later point for treatment of another issue. I enjoy seeing my patients "graduate" from treatment to go on and live happier and more fulfilling lives.
