"In over 30 years of experience I've learned to quickly help people gain a clear understanding of the problems they present, providing understandable recommendations for therapy. I work with couples struggling in their relationships, adolescents and their families, and with individuals facing ongoing pressures from work, relationships, and internal distress. Much of my experience is in helping people recover from trauma, such as war experiences, physical and emotional abuse, losses and changes due to aging and to life threatening medical or physical conditions."

"Psychotherapy is a very special endeavor with potential for positive change and decrease in discomfort. I see the therapeutic relationship formed in psychotherapy as that vehicle for change. I have worked 10 years as a family nurse practitioner and over 15 years as a Clinical Psychologist. My expertise in these combined fields places me in a unique position to understand the mind/body interface I bring a unique perspective to my work particularly in the areas of women's health issues, transitions in life for both men and women, postpartum depression, stress reduction and coping with chronic medical illnesses."

In a safe environment we can explore difficult topics and begin to understand ongoing life patterns. When there is a lack of awareness of why one continues to engage in self-sabotaging behaviors and/or unhealthy relationships, the change is less likely to occur. Therapy can help to explore what has been unfolding in your life and with better understanding better choices become available."
