Treatment Philosophy

As I primarily concentrate on helping people who have been hurt, I employ a trauma-informed philosophy. Recognizing that to have survived hurt (whether it is physical, emotional, or sexual abuse), one employs great strengths, I concentrate on helping the survivor tap into those strengths and develop specific skills to move past the hurts and begin to live again. My other areas of specialization are the treatment of depression and anxiety. As a trained family therapist, I employ an interactive style in doing couples and family counseling, as Orleans County Director of Mental Health, I supervise and train other therapists.
