Master clinical social work
Hello! I am a clinical social worker and hold both a Master in Social Work as well as a certificate in Psychoanalysis. Over the past 35 years I have devoted my professional life to helping people deal with pain and suffering on so many levels. I would be glad to talk with you to see whether we would be able to forge a strong therapeutic partnership .
I have worked as a therapist seeing adults, couples, and adolescents for over 35 years. I bring to my work excellent training and very solid clinical skills. My experience has taught me that change occurs best within the context of a safe and trusting therapeutic partnership. Understanding oneself within the context of this therapeutic relationship can lead to profound changes in one's life. The time and commitment I devote to each of my clients help make me a very effective therapist. Whether you are experiencing depression, anxiety, or dealing with a past trauma, whether you are struggling with marital or parenting issues, I will be able to tailor my approach to your specific needs.
I believe that a careful evaluation is critical to a good therapy plan. Based on my evaluation of each client I use the newest available data on specific symptom relief, as well as the years of experience I have had, to flexibly adjust my plan as necessary.
