My approach to helping people is to clearly understand each person's way of thinking, feeling, understanding, and living - their unique personal psychology - and to tailor an effective method of helping to the individual, their strengths and their needs. Much of my life's enjoyment comes from helping people live happier, more fulfilling lives. In working with me as your counselor or life coach, you can expect someone who listens with a caring and empathic attitude - someone who will provide expert and effective feedback to help you reach your goals for a satisfying and joyful life!

I have been providing psychotherapy and counseling since 1987 and coaching since 2003. I integrate various traditions: Positive Psychotherapy and Interpersonal Psychotherapy, and Person-Centered, Cognitive, Behavioral, Gestalt, Jungian, and Solution-oriented Counseling, and Life Coaching.

The mission of Inspirations is to help as many people as possible have access to the very best positive psychotherapy, counseling, and creative coaching available, and to enjoy the process. Located in historic buildings, Inspirations provides a comfortable setting for making significant life changes. Call for your first session.
