Are you HAPPY? In my 35 years in private practice I have found that what most people are looking for is HAPPINESS. Through my personal work in my own therapy and studying with Tibetan Masters and Native Elders I have been blessed with the secret of finding happiness. It is my life's work to share how to achieve happiness with individuals,couples and families. I have also come to believe that EMPATHY is the key to healthy,communicative relationships. I studied with Dr. Marshall Rosenbergs' and intergrate his techniques for Non-Violent Communication Skills in my work.

I am trained in Family Therapy and although not always the case, therapy often moves faster when you are willing to include other family members as a part of therapy at some point. It helps me understand you in the broader context of the people that are important to you or have influence in your life. I have been married for 34 years and have three adult children so my personal experience often informs me, along with my training and the expertise I have gathered being a part of The Family Therapy Institute.

I want to create a relationship with my clients based on trust, mutual respect, and unconditional regard. I feel that if I can create this environment I can more deeply connect with others and hope to see things from their perspective. I believe that people have the inner capacity for change, and I want to help them be more able to readily access this. This can look different based on each person, helping people move forward in a way they feel will be most productive. I also value multicultural differences and in an effort to more fully understand a person's frame of reference.
