Welcome to my website! Please feel free to explore the site, read my articles and check out the links.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with nearly 40 years experience. I am the developer of Boundary Management Therapy which I use as a template for my clinical work. I see most problems as a function of blurred and invaded boundaries that we have learned to allow since we were children. Understand that each of us possesses the tools for survival on the planet, including physical and emotional feelings. As we grow up, we learn to distort what our feelings are telling us and, instead, to act on them as we are taught by the culture.
By understanding the relationship that boundary management plays in good mental health and good relationships and following Boundary Management Principles, we learn to improve our relationship to ourselves and our significant others which results in decreased feelings of negative stress and generally improved feelings of wellbeing.
If you would like to learn more, follow the website as I will be posting more articles. If you would like to speak with me in person, please feel free to schedule an appointment.
I accept most insurances.
