I've found it helpful in my practice to be direct and to the point, while maintaining professional and nurturing relationships with my clients. I believe strongly in modeling healthy boundaries, and helping clients to strengthen their own. I love what I do, and I know my clients can sense that. I think my clients can also sense the great respect I have for them. Asking for help is never easy. Especially when one feels vulnerable.

Accepting new/ tele-health clients!! Welcome, simply arriving on this site suggests you have moved forward on your journey to health and wellness. I have been counseling clients for over 20 years and have found that making this initial outreach is often the biggest hurdle. Many of the individuals I work with have experienced depression or anxiety and many have found that substance use, once a form of 'decompression', has in fact compounded their struggle. This does not need to be your 'new' or 'permanant normal.'
