I work with adults, couples, and families who are facing a wide range of issues, such as depression, trauma, anxiety, grief, relationship difficulty and the effects of major life transitions. I have worked in the field of mental health for 35+ years. My counseling approach focuses on assisting clients to develop healthy relationships, to work through trauma, to understand unknown aspects of the self, and to help discover one's originality and creativity. I work with clients to develop greater insight, self-understanding, and healing, leading to a deeper sense of authenticity, meaning, and awareness.

In addition to the vital integrative work of weekly psychotherapy, I offer psychotherapy intensives for individuals or couples - an accelerated and concentrated therapeutic focus on issues the client is working through allowing healing and change more directly and presently. Intensives may be stand-alone or an extension of weekly psychotherapy.

Intensives are uniquely and carefully sculpted for clients. Feel free to contact me for more information, questions, or a brochure.
