I have practiced psychology in the Annapolis area for almost 29 years. Currently I have offices in Annapolis and Kent Island. The slogan you will see in my telephone directory ads is: "Life's too Short to be Unhappy.'' I live by this slogan and encourage patients to do the same. I do my best work with patients who are motivated to make changes and who are open to a direct approach. I always provide input to patients and encourage interaction with the goal of solving problems. I work with adults of all ages and adolescents. I have enjoyed many successful treatment outcomes.

Want to change your life, but not sure about (or done with) conventional therapy? Want less talk and more action? A holistic approach? I combine coaching, energetic, and therapeutic techniques to help clients solve problems by quickly figuring out what's keeping them from getting what they want out of life, "healing" the past, and changing limiting beliefs, troubling emotions, and unwanted behaviors. Clients (including therapists) describe me as "compassionate, knowledgeable, dedicated, perceptive, productive. . . " And while I don't take insurance, I try to be affordable to anyone who thinks I might be right for them.

People find themselves considering therapy for a variety of reasons. Perhaps they find themselves struggling to find balance and acclimate to the many changes in our world today. They find it hard to sleep, stay focused or find motivation. All of a sudden completing tasks takes more effort. Others find it hard to build or maintain relationships with others. Expressing or regulating emotions can be more difficult. While we all have a host of coping strategies that we rely on to get us through life's challenging moments, during times of increased stress we sometimes find these strategies just don’t work as well as they did before.
