I specialize in treating high achieving individuals & couples, with perfectionist tendencies. My priority is your emotional safety. Non judgmental support allows for your sharing openly and honestly. The need to "be right", is often unconscious, and although well meaning, you may hurt those you love. My skilled intuition, and 25+ yrs. of clinical success, knows hope is available for the motivated and committed recovering anxious, obsessive, & over analyzing individual. Our trusting relationship allows us to reflect on your life, and relationships; as together we will explore and challenge you to honestly ask: "Do I want to be right?"... or, "Do I want to be loved?"...

I carefully listen with intent, to your unique experiences, and use our working relationship - gaining insight into your personal blind spots that are causing you emotional discomfort. You will be challenged with loving support, to see what you have been protecting yourself from, useful tools will be given, so you may thrive on your own.

Sometimes, painful ruptures in a marriage, or family become overwhelming to repair by the individual's alone, and communication becomes stagnant. In addition to counseling, I offer conflict resolution through my mediation services - an unbiased forum for lending fair solutions that all parties both agree to, and can live with.
