"As a family therapist for over twenty-five years, I combine various approaches to meet the individual needs of my clients. My style is collaborative and supportive and I'm passionate about what I do. I specialize in two unrelated populations: young people from age thirteen through their mid- twenties, and anyone suffering loss, especially the loss of a pet. Perhaps because I still have vivid memories of my young self, and because the animal-human bond is so strong, these topics have special meaning for me. Subspecialties include trauma and stress management including EMDR, couple's work, and parenting."

"I believe that the start of change is through self-awareness! Being aware of triggers from past wounds may guide people at a conscious level to explore an understanding of what is occurring at their unconscious level. Unconscious memories from past wounds can at times control and influence someone\'s current thought patterns, emotions and behaviors. Processing past wounds in therapy may give you more control over problematic cognitive, behavioral, and emotional patterns. I believe that people are doing the best that they can do with what they have learned. "
