About

I believe it is possible for people to change. For over 25 years, I have been working with teens, adults and seniors, helping them reassess what they want out of life and how to get it, change their approach to work and relationships, and heal the emotional and spiritual pain of loss, anxiety and depression. My areas of special interest include: Couples Therapy: Resolving Conflict and Deepening Intimacy; Grief and Loss: Healing the Pain of Loss and Adjusting to Living--Washingtonian magazine has named me a Top 10 Grief Therapist; Chronic Illness and Care Giving: Balancing Reality and Hope
Depression and Anxiety: Moving More Freely through the Day; I invite you to take risks and challenge yourself, but always at the pace that is right for you. I was pleased when one of my clients described our relationship as "a place where it is safe to be unsafe."
Because robust relationships are so important, I have pursued advanced training in both couples' therapy and sex therapy. In the area of grief and loss, I offer education to the community and train other professionals. Each fall, I work with surviving family members of Fallen Firefighters.
