Hours of Service
I am able to offer a wide range of services because I have been a psychologist since 1974. I have had the privilege of seeing the science of clinical psychology develop. I work constantly to stay current in the field both through training and teaching at the university level. After earning my first master's degree, I worked as a school psychologists for thirteen years in Fairfax County, VA. I then returned to school, earning a second master's degree and a Ph.D. My training included working in hospital settings with severely mentally ill clients and those found not guilty by reason of insanity. I have also worked in a university counseling center. My dissertation was on the long-term effects of traumatic death.
I enjoy variety in my practice, working with individuals, families and couples. My core orientation is cognitive-behavioral, but I also use EMDR, Guided Imagery, hypnosis, and, most recently, I've been receiving training in Energy Psychology techniques. I work with parenting skills to teach parents how to help their children with behavioral and emotional problems. In couples work, I use the methods developed by the Gottman Institute. In all my work I rely on Evidence Based Practices that have research to support their effectiveness. I believe that therapy is a consumer service. I work with my clients to establish goals and achieve them.
