I've been in clinical practice now for about 10 years, and in that time I have gained experience in addressing issues related to strong emotions (such as anger, stress, anxiety and depression--what is now often referred to as "affect regulation"), interpersonal and developmental trauma, the application of effective parenting techniques, couples counseling, and helping clients through life transitions such as career change, divorce, and retirement.
