I am a Licensed Psychologist who has practiced in Tampa for over 25 years. I specialize in the treatment of adults 19 and older who are experiencing depression, anxiety, and relationship or personality problems. These issues are often the result of current situational difficulties and may be complicated by echos from childhood struggles or trauma. I also work with individuals in transition; each new stage of life presents challenges and developmental tasks that can benefit from therapeutic work.My work is influenced by several therapy orientations that allow me to perform a thorough evaluation of an individual’s difficulties from all aspects of development and function. These include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, Psychoanalytic theories, and EMDR and trauma treatment approaches.I work with each person collaboratively to develop an understanding of his/ her unique situation, determine a focus/goals, and review treatment options. While I believe that our past influences our present problems, I understand that most people are motivated to come to therapy for symptom relief in their current lives.
