Narrative of Services:

I provide evaluations, individual, family and group therapy for adults, children and adolescents, who stuggle with mood disoders, anxiety and attention issues. About 30 % of my full time practice is directed to the treatment of OCD. That percentage appears to be on the rise this year. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure R/P and ACT as treatment models for my practice. I collaborate closely with Child and Adult Psychiatrists in my area. My practice partner Ms. Laura Ann Kramer, RN, MSN APRN has a great deal of experience in psychopharmocology and is able to prescribe for adults, children and adolescents.
