Life can be overwhelming. Stress from relationships, work, school, family and health issues can be paralyzing at times. Friends and family can listen but often don’t know how to help. Large numbers of people silently carry the scars from childhood trauma and traumatic experiences in adulthood. Some wonder how they can get their lives back on track after the loss of a relationship, a financial setback, or decisions that they regret. They need an objective opinion from an educated professional who can compassionately sit with them in their pain and help them find a better way through the pain.
My role as a counselor is to help clients process their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions, assist them in developing effective coping strategies, and help to formulate clear, achievable goals to create positive, sustainable change in their lives. Counseling is a collaborative effort and I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is essential to achieving successful outcomes. In our work together, I will utilize various therapeutic interventions and knowledge in an effort to help all clients identify patterns, triggers, and behaviors that may be contributing to feelings of distress or discontent.

After studying human nature and offering psychotherapy and executive consultation for more than 40 years, I decided to retire as of December 2018. In retiring, I offer the following. I realize that what people want is to live authentically, lovingly, and happily. The problem is that we have so many beliefs about life, relationships, and work that don't result in the outcomes we want. Because these beliefs are so widely held, we do not recognize that there are more effective ways to live. The people I have worked with come to realize and utilize ways of thinking, relating, and working that result in much happier effective lives.
Taking the first step to improve your life can feel difficult and daunting, especially when you live with anxiety and fear. But I believe that every single person has the strength and capability to create positive changes in their life. I strive to provide a caring and open space for my clients, so they can begin to break down the barriers they face on the path to achieving their goals. With extensive experience in the field providing treatment of anxiety disorders, OCD, and PTSD, I work to provide supportive and understanding therapy to meet each client's individual needs.
I am passionate about helping children, teens, and adults feel more confident in certain areas of their lives and reach their greatest potential. My role is to help you navigate the challenges that make it difficult for you to live a more fulling life.
