Life can be difficult at times. Perhaps you are wanting to make some changes in your life, or relationship. I believe that most of us CAN make the changes we deeply want to, particularly if we have a kind and knowledgeable advocate to that process. You may have reservations about asking for support. Know that when you do, you are bravely moving yourself forward to a better tomorrow. I strive to be a compassionate, trustworthy, and enthusiastic partner to my clients' growth processes.
With two therapy credentials and 34+ years of practice, I have training and experience in treating the concerns of couples, individuals and families. Whether I am working with one person or more, it seems a good deal of my work has to do with relational issues. With couples, I strive to point them toward a relationship where both feel safe and supported.
If you choose to work with me, know that I will draw from a framework of diverse methodologies to tailor my work with you to your UNIQUE personality, preferences, strengths, goals; and, if a couple or family, to your specific relational patterns and concerns., All, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, religions etc. are welcomed in my practice.
