Are you feeling stuck in your life and want to learn ways to move towards a more fulfilling life? I would love to help you! I am a Clinical Psychologist licensed in CT MA. I have developed ACT Now Psychotherapy which is Active, Creative Time sensitive. In addition, I am the author of The Wake Up and Dream Challenge which teaches techniques I developed over the course of my career. My book and unique therapeutic techniques teach clients how to achieve their dreams by charting their way to the future. When you work with me, you will 1st assess and learn how to enhance your Dream Potential by taking the Dream Quotient (DQ) Questionaire. Then you will learn to develop your own Dream Positioning System (TM) (DPS). The DPS is similar to the GPS in your car; however, it allows you to program multiple aspirations/destinations at the same time. If you would like to start moving towards a life that includes your dreams, contact me.

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Not necessarily, but: people with narcissistic personality disorders who need constant reassurance of their worth and a desire for power and wealth may be attracted to the profession. The combination of narcissism and sociopathic personality disorder is particularly lethal for political leaders. There are many other professions which may attract them, i.e., finance, television and movies to name a few.
