"An active listener"

Gender: Male/Male Identifying

Languages Spoken:

During the Covid-19 Pandemic, I am providing treatment remotely making use of Zoom.

Each stage of life brings different challenges and individuals handle these challenges in different ways.  Young children may experience anxiety, social adjustment issues or discomfort with aggression to name a few.  These types of concerns may be short lived or may require intervention for children and their parents to navigate such realities.  Adolescents may begin displaying a drop off in academic focus or indications that he/she are drawn to anti-social activity or challenges with mood management.  Adults may be discouraged about their lack of success with relationships, marital problems, challenges of the work world or the stress of new families.  Others are confronted by the impact of alcohol or substance abuse.  These are but a sample of frequently appearing issues that are presented by my clients.

My goal is to draw on my many years of clinical and personal experience to offer an environment for productive engagement and problem solving.  Approaches may vary with the needs and unique characteristics of those who come for assistance.  As an active listener, my effort is to provide an environment that supports comfort and trust, but also stays on task in addressing the mutually established goals of our work together.
