Self esteem in the dumps? Moods driving you "nuts"? Arguments, bickering and frustration in your relationships? Sex an "issue"? Whatever you are struggling with; relationships, anxiety, depression, women's issues, men's issues, teenagers, I will work with you to help you and those you love, feel better and function better. I will listen carefully to your story and work with you to recognize and change patterns of behaving and feeling that lead to difficulties. I offer you empathy and understanding and my depth and breadth of life and educational experience. We will work together to meet your goals.
I have twenty years of experience working with adolescents and adults as a sexuality educator. Additionally, I especially enjoy working with adults and couples who are looking for deep and lasting changes, more meaning, and contentment in their lives.
As a licensed clinical social worker and sexuality educator I bring you sympathetic understanding and broad knowledge to help you become comfortable and deal with your most intimate and private concerns.
