My ideal client is one who is invested and motivated to work in therapy. I love working with individuals and couples. I believe that it takes a great deal of courage to come into counseling. I am gentle but direct in my approach. I do not want you to waste your time and money on useless therapy that does not help you change the things that you want to change. It is important to me that you walk away from therapy feeling better about yourself and believing that you have the effective tools to help you improve your life.

I have been in my practice for over 20 years. I work effectively with men and women using a wide varity of modalities. Everyone is unique and will respond to different methods of treatment. I am an experienced Crisis Counselor and have learned how to identify problems fairly quickly.

I am a certified Gestalt Therapist and I am skilled in helping people recognize what they are doing internally in the here and now that isn't working for them. I believe that this is very powerful and effective. I have a great deal of experience working with families as a Family Reconciliation Services Counselor, a Child and Family Therapist and as a Clinical Director for troubled teens.
