"My goal is to help you get unstuck. You will begin to feel better just by taking the first step. Serious problems often need someone to both listen and offer alternative ways for thinking in order to make changes that last. Doing nothing and just hoping and wishing that things will get better doesn't work. I will prompt you and support you in taking concrete steps. I talk straight, listen closely and respectfully ask good questions. Starting with our first session, you will begin to figure out a new way to go. Let's talk soon about beginning."

"I have always been a helper. In the first grade my compassion got me into trouble for reassuring a classmate that the teacher wouldn't mind if he removed the tape over his mouth to eat his recess snack. Needless to say, she minded. In high school I was the "go to" person for friends who were having all sorts of relationship problems. This pattern continued through college. I guess it is no surprise that I now help people solve their problems for a living."
