With almost 40 years experience as a therapist in private practice my
office has been on the top floor of the New England Building in Winter Park since 1984. I have a background of social service agency and hospital experience and now specialize in therapy for Wellness Issues. I currently work with clients dealing with a wide range of issues to help them improve their overall mental and physical health and satisfaction in life.
Most clients seek therapy to fix a problem. My practice encourages clients to go beyond fixing problems to change their lifestyle which ensures their ability to maintain new skills. My Wellness Study Groups which promote a more healthy and satisfied lifestyle are the focus of my practice. Many people now see joining a fitness center as a welcome addition to a healthy physical lifestyle. Joining a Wellness Study Group is a way to maintain overall mental health. Clients are supported and encouraged in the company of their peers. Participating in a Wellness Study Group sets up a structure of accountability that keeps clients focused and on track to meet their goals.
As a psychoeducational therapist, my therapeutic approach encourages clients to actively participate and take responsibility in their own process. I give handouts and follow-up exercises to complete between sessions. I provide unconditional support and direct and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer an individualized approach personalized for each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each client to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
