I offer psychological services to adults, as individuals, couples or families. I see your life experience, relationship with chemicals, family of origin, psychological and/or physical diagnoses, as threads of the tapestry which is your life. I will provide emotional support for the discussion of whatever issues you bring; encourage self awareness, self and other understanding, and recommend tools to help you accomplish therapeutic objectives you determine.
In order to help you decide whether I might be able to help, I will share some information about myself. I earned a Ph. D. in 1982, in Community Counseling, from the School of Applied Behavioral Sciences, Ohio University. I was licensed as a Psychologist in 1985; certified in Chemical Dependency in 1985, licensed in 2006; and licensed as a Clinical Counselor in 1989. I worked at Tri-County Mental Health & Counseling, Inc. before initiating a private practice in 1985.
