I have had interesting challenges and successful outcomes with the following populations: Anxiety disorders, including those experiencing panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder and mood disorder (those experiencing depression whether mild or severe). Relationship issues are a significant part of my practice. In addition to providing insight, helping to make important connections, providing support and guidance, I also research and share educational material with patients seeking information regarding their specific challenges. A sense of humor is always important in lifting one from the discontent of their personal worries, fears and doubts. When patients (and these are usually adolescents and adults) are commited to treatment, they often experience a more favorable outcome. Usually, it is the quality of the therapist -client relationship that makes the difference when interventions are integrated with specific theoretical models that are finely attuned to the patient's needs. Rather than having the client fit the therapy model, I attempt to fit the model/approach to the client.
