About

It is important that my patients feel respected and encouraged. My job is to really listen and help you feel understood. I also think my role is to give you lots of feedback and not just be a passive listener saying, "uh, uh, hmm, I see, hmm". I am a coach, cheerleader, teacher, confidante, and accountability partner. The biggest complaint I have heard over the years about any past therapists whom patients felt were not helpful was the complaint that the past therapist was way too passive. I work best with those that want a therapist high in empathy but is not passive.
I have 28 years of experience, hold a Master's degree in counseling psychology which involved two years of academic and clinical training, hold a Ph.D. (doctorate) in clinical psychology which involved 7 years of academic, clinical, and research training. Becoming a psychologist I underwent extensive supervised practice and multiple licensing examinations.
In addition to daytime appointments I can see patients Monday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. There is ample parking. I have a strong Christian faith commitment but work with many people that don't. The people that see me often report that therapy with me is very relaxed and even enjoyable. Therapy is just a conversation!
