I have a heart to help people who are hurting and looking for relief, change, and hope. Maybe you're looking at life right now and it looks bleak, but you don't know what's wrong and much less how to fix it, or maybe you know exactly what your problem is, but you don’t know what to do about it or you just need an unbiased ear to sit with you, listen to you, and walk through the struggle with you as we work to find a solution. Regardless of your situation, I would love to help.

I have ten years of clinical experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I also train master's and doctoral level student therapists at a local university to help clients confront any life challenges. Throughout my career, I have never met a truly "broken" person incapable of making positive changes, and I work collaboratively with my clients to resolve their unique issues. I intentionally keep a small practice to provide clients with dedicated and individualized attention. I return voicemail messages within 24 hours.

I am an individual, couple, and family therapist with more than 30 years experience helping people find solutions to problems in living. I teach people how to be effective therapists at a local university graduate program as well as conducting workshops around the world and publishing extensively on how to help therapists be effective in helping people improve their marital, family, and business relationships. My private practice is intentionally small and individualized - My personal ethics are such that first interviews are designed for the client to have an opportunity to meet with me and decide if they think I can help them, and equally important, for me to decide if I think I can be of help. If I cannot help I will fire myself and recommend an appropriate referral. I do not accept insurance.

Are you living the best version of "you"? Is what you are doing each day working to build a better life? What's holding you back from changing? These are questions I might ask during our first session. I approach therapy from a collaborative viewpoint. Together the client and therapist will build a therapeutic relationship that will produce positive solutions.

Sometimes the small things make the biggest difference and the largest challenges are not so big in perspective. I believe that participating in counseling can provide that perspective and be a most remarkable and rewarding journey. The counseling process is not always easy and can be quite difficult. Realizing this, I always feel so honored when my clients are willing to include me on their journey. I enjoy working with families and children as they determine who they want to become and are willing to do whatever necessary to make it happen.
