I have training and experience working with many different presenting issues and identities, as well as clients' support systems (partners, parents, families, children.) I work relationally with individuals, families, and couples.

A solid therapeutic relationship is one of the strongest predictors of positive outcomes in therapy. I am glad that you are seeking more information to see if we might be a good fit to work together in meeting your goals. I will keep it brief as some clients prefer to know very little about me. Others seek more information...so if there are any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.​I was born into a large midwestern family. After high school, I headed to the east coast where I attended the United States Naval Academy.

Asking for help for yourself or a loved one can be difficult. Sharing your life experiences, thoughts and feelings with a complete stranger is even more difficult. That is why I believe that it is important to build a strong foundation of trust and help you feel comfortable and safe enough to share your story and life experiences with me. Finding a good fit with a therapist is very important to reach your goals and is key to growth and bringing forth your inner strength.

I am interested in blended family issues, divorce, and parenting using an eclectic approach tailored to your specific needs. Sometimes, because of things we have gone through in our past we learn protective strategies that end up keeping you stuck. They might be helping you feel safer, but they may be shrinking your life and limiting your opportunity to be your best authentic self.

Over the last two and half decades my clientele has changed along with my experience, skill acquisition and personal life. I have been fortunate to have a career that reflects my own life including peek moments, many blessings, lessons, long trials and struggles. Big losses have rounded the edges of once sharp ideals and brought a humble compassion and gratitude for the souls I've met in my office. While I have a solid grasp of several powerful treatment modalities, my goal first is to be a good human to those who seek me out and to utilize my whole self and experience in moving people through their lives.
