I am a Licensed Psychologist, a Certified Laughter Leader--Expert Level; a Para- Chaplain and an Ordained Maggidah (a teacher and teller of stories helping people to bring spirit into their lives.) I use strategic story telling, to help individuals, corporations, social and civic groups and especially seniors both in and out of long-term settings to move from stagnation to active lives whatever the circumstances of their lives. As a two time heart attack and a triple bypass survivor currently living with other forms of chronic pain I have a unique understanding and point of view on mood acceptance and moving beyond that makes me especially valuable in helping clients with these challenges.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
I am a licensed psychologist with a unique view of life whose own experiences have taught me a level of compassion and strength in living that allows me to work more fully with the client who come to me and to use a deeper level of understanding in creating treatment plans in concert with them that will make me obsolete as they achieve their goals. I am always available for "booster" sessions with my clients over the years. I also provide availability by phone and email where needed.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
I specialize in a variety of treatments. However, my top three are EFT; Laughter, Humor and Gratitude; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
What are you proud of in your practice?
As a sole proprietor at the moment I have the freedom to customize all services to the individual client be it a person, family, corporation or senior living facility. I am particularly proud of the results this customization brings.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy working with both women and men who are wanting to heal past traumas and find their purpose in life. I also enjoy watching clients grow as they overcome the impact of past trauma in their lives and develop the tools with which to effectively handle present and future challenges.
