"Each person is a gift to our world. We are born with gifts and the natural ability to love and be loved. This innocence is challenged as we face obstacles from within ourselves and from the outside. Life can be hard and even devastating. Healing is needed. Through years of working with individuals I have been in awe of the strength that exists when it is recognized and encouraged to come forth. As a therapist, I am blessed to be part of a process of healing that happens through the use of good clinical skills, support, care and hope."

"I believe in a family systems approach. As a marriage and family therapist, I look at the individual, the couple, and the family as a whole. Often times, it appears as one family member is "the problem", when in fact, they could be responding to a change in the family climate. Being open and willing to explore possibilities within the family will make for a more successful therapeutic experience. "
