Having previously worked as a producer in the Television Industry for over 20 years, I understand the complexities,
stress and issues that confront many actors, directors, producers, and crew members. I provide individual
consulting and workshops in: CONFLICT RESOLUTION
I travel to the set to conduct workshops or to counsel and mediate any problems, everything is handled with strict
confidentiality. My experience with "various" personalities during my years in production makes me proficient with
understanding the special treatment and attention it often takes to work with difficult individuals that may be
creating tension on the set or within the TV production company. I will go to an actors home since many do not
want to be seen entering a therapist office. I offer both consulting and therapy depending on individual needs.
TELEVISION GUEST ASSESSMENTS AND AFTER CARE:
I offer psychological profiles, support, and follow-up assessment for guests on television talk and reality shows.
Often stress and emotional "breakdowns" occur with individuals that are not accustomed to the pressures of TV
production, media scrutiny, and rejection. Production companies are hiring psychotherapists to assess
individuals/contestants that may not be able to emotionally handle the pressures associated with TV reality/talk
shows. This is a safeguard for both the individual and the production company. Precautions and professional input
will ultimately save the television production company and/or Network money from any time or disputes that may
arise in the production of the show. I am presently the After Care Specialist and Mental Health Consultant on T.D.
Jakes Show. I was the After Care Producer on "Dr. Drew's Life Changers Show" ; After Care Specialist on "The
Ricki Lake Show", Aftercare Specialist on "The Test" and numerous other shows.
I have spoken and conducted workshops on issues such as Relation Issues, Conflict Resolution, Stress
Management, Loss and Grief, my experiences as a volunteer during Hurricane Katrina, and more. The following is
a list of organizations I have spoken.
