About

For many people, the idea of reaching out for help is daunting. Whether dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, relationship issues, or life and work effectiveness, it takes courage and trust to share personal thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with another person, especially a stranger. My clients have given me feedback that my style--informal, real, honest, non-judgmental and often good-humored--helps to diffuse the anxiety they feel when entering counseling. I mix this personal style with all I've learned in 30 years of experience as a therapist, supervisor, and consultant.
I have been director of two university counseling centers, supervising professional staff and consulting with other professionals. Leadership experience includes serving on a national board of counseling center directors and on several state-wide task forces, making dozens of presentations, and chairing a county mental health advisory board.
If you feel you might be ready to talk with someone about your concerns, please feel free to contact me with your questions. I know it's hard to find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable, and I'd be glad to help you get to know me or find someone else to help if I'm not the right person for you.
