ALL ABOUT TREATMENT
According to the American Psychological Association, “Psychologists help people of all ages live happier, healthier and more productive lives.” Through the use of various methods and collaborative treatment measures, my patients develop life-changing habits to help them cope with any of life’s various obstacles. My therapy sessions and comprehensive psychological assessments are designed to identify individual's strengths in addition to weaknesses, in order to provide patients with effective tools to help them reach their full potential in all aspects of life.
