Each person, male or female, is accepted as a unique individual and accepted for where they are at this point in time. I bring an awareness that an individual's behavior and feelings are multidetermined by many complex factors - family of origin, societal, interpersonal relationships and individual characteristics and experiences. Understanding, change and better adaptation are feasible goals for all individuals.

I specialize in building relationships: helping parents get more cooperation and compliance from their children with less energy; helping couples beat the odds to stay happily married; and helping all types of artists connect to their creativity. My clients appreciate creativity and honest communication, value our relationship and time together and are hopeful about the future. They understand that true and lasting change comes from within and is the result of patience and concentrated effort - both in and between sessions. The process encourages clients to tell me what is and isn't working in our sessions.

Offering specialized services for First Responders, Military, Veterans, Medical and Behavioral Health Professionals affected by critical incidents, traumatic events, and cumulative stress. Traumatic stress, whether a single event or long-term history, can impair our ability to function with resilience and ease. Stress may also lead to self-medicating with substances, which merely mask symptoms, provides no solutions, and can create more difficulties over time. Specific interventions are used to take the power out of negative memories and beliefs, while improving emotional regulation, presence in the moment, and optimism.
