Licensed Professionals to Guide You
Life can be difficult. Speaking with a professional psychotherapist can help. As your therapist, we care about your well-being, provide all the tools you need to seize the day, and teach you how to tackle even the most traumatic circumstances.
We are not the kind of therapists who simply ask, “How do you feel about that?” We will tell you what we hear, and what your body language/facial expressions say. Based on this, we can help you reach insights. We also give you the education and resources we think will be helpful. Often we ask you to try some techniques to see if making small changes can help.
"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."
I graduated from Syracuse University and have been a therapist for over 30 years. I started Global Therapy, my private practice in 2001 in Tampa, Florida. Since then, I have moved a few times but settled in Northwest Arkansas. I have worked in agency outpatient counseling centers in New York, Maine, and Florida and I’m licensed in AR, FL, ID, and MO as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).
During my career, I have always provided face-to-face therapy. Over the years i have included telehealth as a modality. Currently I provide face to-face and telehealth in our Bentonville office. For clients in FL, ID and MO I can be reached via a HIPAA compliant telehealth platform.
I work with individuals who are depressed, anxious, deal with addictions both substance or behavioral in their families or relationships. I also help individuals work through, survive and thrive after childhood and adult trauma. I have used among other tools EMDR to help individuals gain a freedom from the past. I am also qualified as a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP). I provide evaluations for DOT, substance impaired employees.
My philosophy is that you are your own best expert. You know when something is not right and how you would like things to change. Emotionally, you want help getting from where you are now to where you want to be.That’s where I come in. As a therapist, I can help you navigate from what is not working to what helps you find happiness, peace, and comfort.
