My clients seek my services when personal problems or relationship failures and disappointments drain the joy, fun and creativity from otherwise rewarding lives and careers. No one wants to remain stuck or feel sad, depressed or anxious for long. By using a warm, interactive and pragmatic approach, I actively engage with clients to help them gain perspective and insight into patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that no longer work. With this understanding, clients move forward and make successful life changes. I believe that relief from emotional pain comes from self-awareness gained in a safe, compassionate, and supportive environment.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 30 years experience. Originally trained in England in the 1960’s, I later earned a doctorate in clinical social work, a level of education beyond that which is required for licensure, so that I could bring advanced training and expertise to my clients.

I also specialize in treating the psychological challenges that accompany serious health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. I have extensive experience leading support groups for women newly diagnosed with breast cancer. I strongly believe that good psychotherapy can be a profound and life-altering experience.
