I am a licensed psychologist, and have been working in the field of psychology since 1985. I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from Florida Institute of Technology.
Although I have a general practice and work with people from five to seventy-five, I have some areas of specialization. I thoroughly enjoy providing psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families, including teens and children. I feel honored to be given the opportunity to help you learn and grow. I believe that given a warm atmosphere and the necessary tools, most people can realize personal growth and fulfillment. It brings me a great feeling of satisfaction when a person proudly walks away, no longer in need of my services. Of course, it is a wonderful feeling to hear from you periodically, throughout the years.
I provide psycho-educational evaluations for gifted placement, learning disabilities and ADHD. These evaluations are administered as you or your child sit with me at my desk so I can make every effort to insure you or your child will feel comfortable and encouraged during the evaluative sessions. My hope is that the information gleaned from these evaluations will help you or your child feel more confident in your strengths, and more knowledgeable about your learning style.
I work a great deal in Reproductive Psychology, in which I provide support for couples attempting to cope with infertility. I help individuals and couples as they undergo various treatments in hopes of building a family. If needed, I aid couples as they explore alternative and creative means to build a family. Additionally, I work with several agencies and medical establishments, as I provide psychological evaluations for egg donors, surrogates and intended parents. I provide support as couples explore the possibility of adoption. I find it particularly heart-warming and rewarding to see a couple transform into a family.
