Announcement icon Currently, I am not seeing new clients and am only doing teletherapy. I will soon transition to a hybrid of in-person and/or remote.
For over 30 years, I have accompanied others on their journey towards greater self-awareness, more fulfilling relationships, and exploring the needs and challenges of maintaining sound emotional, physical and spiritual health. My experience is particularly helpful when working on self-esteem issues, depression, grief and loss, relationship struggles, and faith and spiritual development. My clinical work draws upon skills developed while working as a hospital chaplain, pastoral counselor, bereavement counselor, youth counselor and a mental health therapist in a social service agency.
I have had specialized clinical training to meet the needs of those who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or are questioning their sexual orientation as well as those who have or are impacted by HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening or serious illnesses.
Many of my clients have chosen to work with me specifically because of their interest in exploring the intersection of their spirituality and other parts of their lives- including their sexuality. Others have expressed comfort with my therapeutic style which blends sensitivity and humor with insight and experience.
