About

I have been practicing as a marriage and family therapist for over 35 years. I work with couples to restore their relationships, families with adolescent issues, divorce, blended families and infertility issues; Also individuals who want to heal family of origin and abuse issues, depression, and confusion regarding life's direction and circumstances. I respect each individual's journey, am honored to be trusted with the pain and complexity of life and hope to support them along the way. I attempt to be a guiding counselor while sometimes playing the role of "rent-a-grandmother" to provide guidance and support.
After 35 years or more of private practice, I have developed an eclectic version of therapy. I utilize my training from family systems, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic and emtionally-based couples therapy to address both the presenting issues for problem-solving and understand the basis of the on-going issues.
I also specialize in working with clients with eating disorders. I work in conjunction with a nutrition therapist and physician to provide a team approach to treatment. And over the last several years I have also been working with clients before and after undergoing bariatric surgery for weight loss. .
