“Dr. Irene,” author of the archived  Dr. Irene’s Verbal Abuse (Site)!

Dr. Irene offers over 25 years of post- doctoral clinical experience in the evidenced-based, behavioral practice of clinical psychology. 

Greetings, and thank you for visiting my pages. I specialize in treating individuals, couples, and families who are struggling with verbal and emotional abuse issues. These include PTSD, codependency, anger management, “love addiction,” mood disorders, etc.

Most often I work with people whose partner’s actions are motivated by narcissistic or sociopathic traits. In addition I treat depression, bipolar, panic and anxiety, stress, marital/relational, and general psychological problems.

Extensive research demonstrates the effectiveness of “evidence-based” approaches to psychotherapy. My goal is to help you be where you want to be and gain control of  your life. You will learn to:

  • Direct your life in accordance with the values you cherish.
  • Run your life, rather than let life run you.
  • Recognize that you are the only one who controls you!

I will meet you where you are in life, and, if you agree, help you attain empowerment skills.

Three concepts will guide our work:

  • Mindfulness
  • Acceptance
  • Self-control
