About

I am passionate about: Couples Counseling (using Emotionally Focused Therapy), Shame (self-esteem, self-confidence, anger), Old Trauma (co-dependency, PTSD), Alcoholism Recovery (using 12 Steps and emotional sobriety), Grief/Loss, Christian and Spiritual Counseling and Aging. My deepest conviction is the dignity of the human person and my best tools are compassion, mercy, forgiveness and grace.
My soul task is to remind people of their inherent goodness, the True Self. I don't give it to you; you already have it, but you may not be confident of it. Everybody gets stuck in the False Self, which is not bad, just limited and problematic. Through resourcing, compassion and boundaries, I help you improve relationships and build resiliency.
I am humbled and grateful to work with each client. Since I believe so strongly in your True Self, I'm instantly your biggest supporter. The ancient playwright said, "I am human and I think nothing human is alien to me." Be assured that I will hold your story with reverence and care. May you find the provider that you need right now. Peace and all good!
