If you're dealing with intense emotions, feelings of abandonment, unstable relationships, impulsive and possibly self-damaging behaviors, difficulties in controlling anger, feelings of emptiness, moodiness, stress, paranoia, and even suicidal ideation - I can help. I help clients every day who have a history of trauma (even multiple and severe traumas) and who really struggle in dealing with other people and with communicating effectively. I help those who are really in need of making life changes and those who are just in search of understanding. I help couples who want to strengthen their relationships. I can help you. I specialize in helping people work through trauma, communicate more effectively, and use hypnosis to be successful. Therapies include: client-centered, holistic, strengths-based, cognitive behavioral (CBT), solution-focused, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), heart rate variability (HRV), regression (including past life regressions), & behavioral. Techniques: behavioral analysis, empathic listening, mindfulness, & meditation. I started with my internship in the Naval Hospital on Okinawa, Japan and am currently working for Turning Point Family CARE (TPFC) as a full-time, outpatient therapist and I facilitate the DBT program and teach three skills training classes a week! If knowledge is power, then let's work on self-empowerment!

As a seasoned and thoughtful psychiatrist I work to help my patients return to and maintain their usual good functioning. I remain optimistic that there are reasonable solutions to help control every mental disorder. I like to educate my patients about the treatment process and ask that they have an active part in decision making. Available every Tuesday, time flexible. I base my approach on 37+ years of board certified psychiatric practice where I have served as attending on many inpatient units ranging from adult crisis, adolescent and eating disorder - had outpatient offices at community mental health centers and private mental health systems - have been on the clinical faculty at the Dartmouth Medical School, where I did my psychiatry residency, and the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.
