About

Bio

My primary focus is on using rapid release and skill development tools so that you can experience a more whole and healthy life, without the need for lengthy and expensive therapy. My 40+ year career as a clinical psychologist includes extensive experience in the areas of performance enhancement, trauma, stress management, anxiety and depression reduction, pain management, crisis resolution and PTSD. I believe that within every person exists the ability to heal and evolve to their greatest potential.

Specialties
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.
