I am a Board Certified Tele Mental Health Provider, licensed as an Independent Clinical Social Worker, with a PhD in Psychology. I have about 12 years of clinical experience. Some of the salient issues I have worked on are; military combat stress and PTSD, psychological wellness and treatment adherence for people living with HIV/AIDS and their families, child welfare, research on trauma and secondary trauma, displaced populations, educator on stress management, prevention and self-care.
I provide services to expatriates/international workers, men 40 years of age and up and also do psychological assessments for legal purposes. Expats and men who are 40 years of age and up are chronically invisible to psychological healthcare, yet, with a huge need. Being away from family and the consistent difficulties involved in creating solid and long lasting relationships, work burnout, stress, depression and compassion fatigue takes its toll on your wholesomeness. Most men are reluctant to seek help with emotional and psychological problem. They do not talk about IT. Yet, in addition to daily life stressors, a man 40 years of age is approaching "mid-life crisis” and often unprepared for the potential psychological turbulence.
Call me anyway. In addition to the above, I have plenty of experience in other areas of psychological well being; I understand "women issues", including relationship problems, the stress from family, work and every day responsibilities, PMS, postpartum depression, the swings of perimenopause and menopause, weight gain and self image issues, and so on ... do not feel left out.
You can count on me when "hanging in there" is no longer enough. I understand that problems are manageable and solvable if and when you choose to start working on them. When you toss and turn at night, when the emotional pain from everyday life becomes unbearable and you feel hopeless and despair, take that first, yet difficult step to contact me. I guarantee that together we can start to chart a path to clarity.
Thank you for visiting my practice!
