About

Making a commitment to change can be daunting. Whether you are reaching out to resolve current conflicts of values or conscience, or to improve your relationships with family members, friends or work colleagues, help is available. Together we will identify obstacles and work towards a timely resolution or to the recognition that the goal is not necessarily equilibrium but a healthy striving between what we currently are and what we could be or hope to become.
I specialize in treating older adolescents/adults who have experienced trauma, utilizing an empathic but effective approach to strengthening the healthy inner core. I also have extensive experience working with adults experiencing life transitions, including grief and loss work. Populations include: former foster youth, veterans and public safety workers.
My orientation originates in Franklian Psychology, and thus my focus is on helping clients locate meaning and transcendence in their lives. I help clients use the tools of feeling, intellect, appreciation and evaluation to respond to life crises, gently moving the focus from what happened to what will happen.
