I see kids through elder adults and mostly deal with depression, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, and loneliness. I also deal with Family Mediation and divorce, Civil Mediation and Healthcare/Medical Arbitration and kids whose parents are having a hard time. Additionally, I see vets who are graduates of Iraq and Afghanistan with PTSD and other problems. On the Career side, I do career counseling and assessment to assist people in figuring out what they want to do when they grow up.
I specialize in assisting people, help themselves. We know that changes don't come from others, but from "within" ourselves. If I could show a person the road, then we can enable them to learn how to transverse it on their own.
My uniqueness comes from my own varied experiences.I have; worked with physically ill patients, run multimillion dollar companies and been responsible for over 300 employees and associated families. Not withstanding my own family, kids, dogs, etc. What's more, I love what I do!!
