About

I provide an opportunity for people to freely express their feelings and thoughts to achieve the changes they desire. I work interactively with clients so they may develop their strengths and achieve their goals. Assisting individuals in becoming at ease with their feelings, however difficult they may be, is an important aspect of the work I do. Feelings can become useful tools for living rather than disturbing impediments. The ubiquitous problems of uncomfortable feelings, harmful behaviors, and the challenges of relationships, careers and parenting are common areas of focus.
I also work with children, teens and couples. Individuals working in the creative arts feel comfortable talking to me about the creative process and the special problems of an artistic career. I believe my own serious study of two of the art forms accounts for this.
Each person's life experiences are unique, yet each person must cope with life's difficulties and find pleasures and interests that make up a fulfilling life. Together therapist and client undertake a journey of learning and discovery to realize these ends.
