About

I have enjoyed working with individual adults and couples as a licensed therapist for over 36 years. I work with individuals to heal wounds and trauma from the past. Further I assist those who suffer from depression and/or anxiety or who need help getting through a loss. I also help individuals navigate challenging life transition times. I assist couples in changing hurtful patterns, healing unresolved conflicts, improving communication, and getting beyond infidelity trauma and other betrayals. I encourage self empowerment and accountability to strengthen self esteem.
I use a variety of approaches in my counseling practice including EMDR. (I am an EMDRIA certified therapist). Each client is unique. My approach is to build a trusting and caring relationship that includes working as a team to identify and resolve emotional pain, enlighten where there is confusion and diminish suffering.
It often takes a lot of courage to reach out for assistance with personal and relationship issues. You will be met with warmth and compassion and a deep sense that we are all human and life isn't easy. There is an especially great need now to become stronger and more aware individuals in order to meet the challenges that lie ahead.
