People ask me how I am able to listen to people's problems all day without going crazy and getting depressed myself. The fact is, if that was all that there was to it -listening to people's problems - I probably would go crazy. The great joy in my work, and the satisfaction, is in seeing people get better. This desire keeps me on the learners edge, and it is my passion. I am a capable guide who will respect your individuality and choices along the way while providing you a sureness of foot that only experience can provide.
A significant part of my skill set is in relationship counseling, and the majority of people I work with do get better, and we find lasting solutions. Whether working with relationship issues, personal depression, anxiety, or simply problems in living, there is relief, and solutions.
I see myself as being psychologically and spiritually integrated - at least working in that direction. I have spent my whole life attempting to live a life of integrity. I am honest and joy filled, unwaveringly convinced of the essential goodness that underlies all of us, even when we fail.
