In my professional life, I have concentrated in a number of specialty areas- clients with combined medical and psychological difficulties, addictions, child and adolescent disorders, sexual disorders and sexual abuse, and adoption related issues.
I have been in practice thirty years. I see psychotherapy as a process of increasing self awareness, developing a more realistic and tolerant self esteem, and identifying and working through losses, disappointments and relational conflicts. This process enables reduction in pain, greater self acceptance, and comfort in relationships and family. This process occurs in a collaborative effort between you the client, and myself. The safe environment of the office allows for the full expression and understanding of what you experience, think, and feel. Our work together enables symptom relief, greater personal understanding, growth, responsibility and contentment.

It has been said that in life, it is not the destination, but the journey that is the important part. That may be true, but sometimes, the journey sure is tough to get through! It is my goal as a counselor to walk with you on your journey as you discover aspects of yourself and the world around you so that you can start living your best life.

A safe space to be truly heard, seen and understood. Whether you are grieving a loss, feel overwhelmed, lost, or isolated, therapy is a place to talk, reflect, cry, and sometimes even laugh. It is a form of caring for yourself. A way to gain support. To pause. To reset. To take a breath.

I think there are two general paths to your definition of the ideal client. First, you can focus on the types of therapy you do. For example, you could say, “I help individuals with anxiety and depression.” That definition makes it clear what you do--and don’t do. You don’t do group, family, couples, or relationship therapy. Your practice doesn’t directly deal with eating disorders or sexuality issues, except perhaps as they connect with depression and anxiety. You have a process for working through anxiety and depression.It also may suggest you’re open to a less-regular schedule of therapy, as people’s anxiety or depression chang

I believe that the ability to calm down and solve problems are two of the most crucial skills for success in life! Over the past thirty plus years I have had the honor of having many people from many different backgrounds share their stories of life's victories, challenges, and pain with me. Most individuals have both obvious and hidden strengths that can be called up to help them to move past obstacles. I feel skilled about being able to create the emotional safety for people to truly discover and tap in to their own resources. As clients then learn and become empowered with strong, coping skills, exciting postive changes happen!

The teenage years are the most vulnerable, exciting, and growing years of a young person’s life. Self discovery can often yield low self esteem, independence can easily shift to rebellion, and a slow maturation process often creates impulsive decision making. And when a parent’s warnings and worries don’t seem to have an impact on the teenager’s course, or when it feels too heavy to carry alone, it’s helpful to have another guiding force to help. Through counseling, an adolescent can feel understood, begin to understand themselves, and learn to understand and accept their role in the family and society.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
