Traditional methodologies to treat mental illness often fall short. Many times, the mental health system identifies medications as the sole means and ‘stable’ as the ultimate goal… that should only be the starting point. While medication is necessary, building strong relationships is much more effective in producing long term effects. No therapy or medication can take the place of a caring family. Regardless of the diagnosis, people can have quality and joy in their lives.
I provide individual and family therapy, psycho-education, consultation and referrals around case management and placement issues. I also provide non-medical symptom management interventions, (in cooperation w/a treating psychiatrist), as well as do presentations for NAMI sponsored support groups. As well as highly specialized individual case management and advocation for families and clients.
