As the host of my own popular radio show for eight years, I had a chance to do on a grand scale what I love most: touching people's lives in a positive way. Because of the call-in format, I became every effective at quickly identifying the underlying factors that were causing concern. Today, I continue to use my exceptional intuition and experience to rapidly guide clients in gaining insight into their problems and making changes so that they can lead more fulfilling lives. From our first hour together, you will feel confident that your issues are being addressed.

I believe that empathy, trust, and honesty are the cornerstones of the therapeutic process. My goal is to create a supportive environment where clients can explore new ways to resolve their struggles so that they can reach their full potential as professionals, parents, lovers and people!

I am genuinely "passionate" about helping people become the very best they can "BE." You and I will work together towards this goal. By balancing my capacity for analysis with a compassionate heart, I will lend you my strength so that you will have the courage to find your own.
