Announcement icon I recognize that this is a stressful time for all. I am accepting new clients via Zoom/FaceTime and welcome individuals, couples & families.

About

I collaborate with my clients to work on what is important to them, integrating my knowledge and clinical experience to guide the process. I believe that everyone has problems at times, and that these can prevent us from having the relationships and lives we desire. I see therapy as a dialogue and am active and direct in the process. I will partner with you to change old patterns and to draw out your strengths. Most people say I have a genuine, down to earth manner which makes it possible to feel safe and speak openly.
I specialize in working with individuals, couples and families on relationship issues. I provide the opportunity for people to discuss difficult issues in a calm and neutral environment to increase connection and clarity, with an emphasis on practical changes. People who work with me feel safe and understood.
I've been a therapist for over thirty years and worked in child/adolescent/family programs, outpatient behavioral health clinics, medical settings, on a college campus, and in private practice. I am primarily a narrative and emotion focused therapist, but also draw from many other evidence based practices.
