Safe, comfortable, engaging, thought-provoking, practical, clear -- my clients use these words to describe their psychotherapy experience. My practice has been located in my home on Westnedge Hill for 16 years. Because I have been in the education field most of my life (including 26 years as Director of Counseling at Kalamazoo College), I have worked extensively with teachers and other school/university/college personnel, as well as students. I also find adults from other career paths very interesting and enjoyable! My strengths lie in treating people suffering from depression and other mood disorders, relationship concerns, stress, perfectionism, self esteem issues, and loss and grief.

My therapeutic approach is eclectic -- a mix of relational (How do your concerns affect your ability to connect to others?), psychodynamic (Where do these issues come from?), interpersonal (How do these issues show up in our relationship?) and CBT (How can we reframe these thoughts so they are more realistic, adaptive?) methods.

I am a preferred provider with Blue Cross/Blue Shield and that is the only insurance I currently take. Evening appointments are available. Thank you.
