About

I specialize in relationships, sex therapy, recovery from dysfunctional and abusive families, healing the inner child, loss and grief, stress, life transitions, women's issues, and personal empowerment. I also help people with anxiety, panic attacks, and depression issues. I have taught many college psychology courses, including: Basic Interviewing and Counseling Skills, Psychotherapy Principles and Practices, Women's Issues, and Human Sexuality. I have also written a helpful book on relationships and sexuality. My compassion and genuine desire to help my clients find their authentic connection with their Higher Selves serves to enrich the process of therapy. Trust Your Inner Wisdom!
There are many pathways to wisdom, and all of them deserve our awe and respect, especially the most challenging ones that bring us such painful, yet important, lessons. The process of personal growth and awareness is particularly important in therapy. Honor yourself as you find your own voice.
Keep questioning, keep wondering, keep searching! May you find the answers to the questions you have now, and may you always think of new ones to ask! *******PLEASE CALL MY OFFICE VOICEMAIL FOR MY QUICKEST RESPONSE.
