I enjoy working with relationship issues both gay and straight.
I am an involved counselor who provides feedback and interacts with her clients to promote total wellness. Clients may work short term or long term as we contract for what is best currently. Many clients are surprized that the process is so interactive and useful. Some take notes. My job is to help ground you as you work through your issues, providing clarity and insight. My philosophy is that the therapy belongs to the client. I have 25 years of experience in individual and marital work and am also a Divorce Mediator and a Postal Service mediator. Phone sessions available.

I believe the counseling relationship should be one where you and I form real connection-and that this connection is where the foundation of healing can begin. If you're not feeling the connection with me, please don't give up finding therapeutic help! A good fit is out there.

Experiencing unexplained sources of anxiety can be really scary. Whether you’re an overwhelmed parent of a teen or child, or a young adult struggling with sexual identity exploration within a religious context, or simply feeling like it’s the right time to ask for help, I may be the right fit for you. Not understanding our own behaviors and feelings can be frustrating. Maybe you are having emotional bursts of anxiety that feel like an “overreaction”. Perhaps you have a sense that your past experiences have something to do with your unstable or depressed emotional state, but you are unsure and terrified of where you might begin.

I believe that the psychotherapeutic journey is an Inner Journey ~ one in which we're traveling to find that which we have lost ~ in a word, our Selves. While it is usually some form of disillusion - depression, anxiety, relationship pain ~ that brings us into therapy, we discover that we are on a journey to find home ~ a place of safety, of freedom, of rest. Sooner or later, we learn that the home we are searching for is not to be found outside ourselves but, rather, within. If you are ready to deepen in your own journey, I am here to walk with you.

Therapy provides a safe space to sort through life's problems, receive support and empathy, and ultimately learn how to change to create more peace in your life. By the time we are teens, young adults, or more experienced adults, we can find ourselves stuck in certain thought or behavior patterns that are starting to be problematic. It’s hard to notice the pattern and even harder to learn to break it and try something new. I take incredible joy in working with people to shed light on what’s keeping them stuck and then moving towards more freedom and flexibility in life.

How many times have you heard, “why can’t you just stop?” Do you find yourself wishing those around you would attempt to understand your experience and hear you? Addiction is already so isolating and we often have a difficult time understanding our own behavior without trying to explain it to family and friends. We feel stuck, alone, frustrated, and misunderstood. Imagine what it would be like to identify the root cause of your addiction and start treating the source while learning coping skills for managing addictive behavior, anxiety, and depression.
