Hope is better when it's combined with a plan. If you are having too many fights and not enough resolution, I can help you. I help couples figure out how to resolve stuff once and for all. Even when you're successful in most areas of life, It's hard to be happy when problems are chronically unresolved. It's even worse when the past hangs over the relationship, or you feel like room-mates. If your relationship problems are weighing down your otherwise great life, then counseling can make a big difference.

Offering counseling services for children, adolescents and adults and the families who love them. I seek the hidden strengths in each client, and help them rediscover that strength for their use in healing. I help clients strengthen their connections to others and to themselves. The problems we experience come from a combination of environment, genes and life events. These can sometimes make us feel overwhelmed. We may develop symptoms that we find troubling, or behaviors that cause those who love us to be concerned.
I believe that healing is a collaborative endeavor that requires honest caring without judgment and cooperatively assisting my client in clarifying their goals for treatment. Rather than adopting one methodology for all individuals and issues, I draw from a variety of methods to create a tailored approach to each individual and situation. As a therapist, I am warm, open, encouraging, and direct. I have over 48 years of experience as a mental health professional. Before starting my own practice, I founded an organization, REACH, Inc, to provide psychotherapy and urgent care counseling.
