The Forgiveness Process:
I facilitate the forgiveness process for those I see individually or for couples and marital therapy. For many clients, it is a transformative process. The Forgiveness Process can also be a part of mediation sessions when both parties agree and request it, and it is appropriate.
I do not treat the following conditions:
I do not see children under the age of 16, and thus do not have a "pediatric" practice.
I do not treat sex offenders.
I do not treat Borderline Personality Disorder clients.
I provide a variety of psychological evaluations including: diagnostic, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, adoption, and evaluations for probation and career counseling. I also offer other types of evaluations. Please feel free to inquire about your specific evaluation needs.
I communicate regularly with clients' physicians, psychiatrists, and other medical specialists as needed for successful collaborative treatment.
Motivational Trainings for Organizations:
I have conducted many mental health trainings for various organizations with a wide range of topics. Feel free to request a list. I can typicallytailor a presentation to suit your specific organizational needs
One of the most fun, motivational, and innovative presentations I have created is "The Magic and Power of the Mind"
which includes a demonstration with active audience participation. The training includes magical mental illusions and allows one to experience the remarkable possibilities that are within each of us. Participants will get to answer for themselves the following questions. What only is a magical illusion? What demonstrations simply show the outer limits of the laws of physics? What seemingly impossible mental feats can be accomplished by anyone with practice?
In this interactive presentation, I utilize my amateur magician skills, memorization techniques, reading body language abilities, and show how to apply the various demonstrations to help build powerful teams and individual successes. It is fun presentation that can help people realize that they can accomplish far more than they realize. The training encourages people to believe in themselves and in their work teams. Participants have commented that the presentation inspired them to believe in themselves, and in the power of their team to work together positively, effectively, and efficiently.
