About

For 30+ years I have worked with people struggling with depression, anxiety, marital, family, child, career/work, military and trauma issues. I help them better understand themselves, those around them and how they can get the outcomes they want. People who talk to me feel understood and respected. They get practical direction that makes sense and gets results. I help people find the words to express what is confusing or difficult and to identify the steps needed to get the outcomes they want. I help them gain confidence and identify the inner resources needed for relief and success.
In my thirty years of practice I have worked with every conceivable problem people encounter. Using a variey of proven approaches, I empower people who often don't understand what is wrong or what is needed for relief. My extensive experience permits me to provide the clear direction they seek.
I teach men and women how to speak each others "language". I help parents understand how to give the controls children need to be happy and successful. I help people understand the use of mindfulness, which provides peace even in uncontrollable situations such as loss or impending death.
