Thank you for visiting my web site. I am a clinical psychologist with more than 20 years experience in a variety of settings. I graduated from Quincy College in 1979 and received my doctoral degree in Psychology from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 1987. I am licensed to practice in both Illinois and Missouri.
My training and experience leaves me well versed in the treatment of a variety of cognitive, emotional and behavioral problems. I have extensive experience in working with adolescents, children, families and adults in several different settings. I have been a provider of direct services as well as a clinical supervisor and administrator. Prior to opening my private practice in Quincy, IL, I served as the Chief Psychologist for the St. Louis Family Court, Associate Director of Clinical Services at Chaddock, in Quincy, Ill, and Director of the Counseling Center at Quincy University. My private practice is located at 2272 Chestnut, Quincy, IL
In my practice I focus on individual, couples/marital and family
counseling. Adults and adolescents comprise the majority of my clientele.
Areas of Expertise
My focus is on helping clients deal with a variety of personal, family, marital and life issues. I recognize that life does not take a "time out" so that we can figure out how to feel better. Examples of personal issues can include stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, urges to self-harm, anger management, identity and sexual issues. Other issues can involve family conflicts, traumatic experiences such as sexual assault and accidents, financial stresses and stresses from legal issues. Other related concerns might be stress management, difficulty with motivation, concentration problems, conflicts with co-workers, associates and neighbors, among others.
