I believe that therapy is a journey towards growth and change. Over the past thirty years, I've had the honor of sharing this journey with adults of all ages, as well as adolescents and children. In the beginning, I often help people with an immediate problem or crisis. My personal style is warm, supportive and interactive. I draw from cognitive behavioral techniques, which stress concrete, behavioral change. Gradually, I create a safe space where we can establish a trusting relationship. People begin to identify the patterns they want to change. They replace old behaviors with new ones.

Over the years, I've developed expertise in helping people suffering from anxiety and depression. I treat people with family conflicts and relationship issues, as well as those experiencing grief and loss. Additionally, I see people who've undergone trauma and abuse. I work well with those who want to examine their relationship with alcohol.

I've always had a dog co-therapist because I believe that dogs help people relax. Now I work with my shaggy brown dog named Maisie. She brings a calming presence to the room and often sleeps at peoples' feet. Maisie comes only when invited, of course! (I should add that the best way to reach me and Maisie is through my email.)
