About

Deciding to ask for professional help with a personal or relationship problem can be a bit intimidating. Please feel free to contact me for a brief consultation to discuss whether or not I may be the best fit for you. If it seems that I'm not the best fit, I will gladly direct you to other resources. It's important that you feel safe, respected, and in capable, compassionate care. I work with individuals in an eclectic approach; that is, I integrate elements from several theoretical orientations to help people solve emotional problems, change behavior, and cope with stressful life circumstances, including relationship problems, work stress, and life transitions - to name a few.
My style is to listen carefully, and work actively and collaboratively with each person to encourage greater self awareness and promote real change. In my experience, warmth, humor, and plenty of creativity serve to ease and enhance this often challenging, sometimes scary, ultimately rewarding process.
In addition to private practice, I have worked in medical acute care and rehabilitation hospitals, outpatient health centers, and college counseling centers. I have taught psychology at both undergraduate and graduate levels, and have provided post-doctoral clinical supervision and case consultation.
