About

The decision to begin counseling or therapy is a very important, very personal step. My first priority is to relate to each person, couple or family as unique. Everyone has strengths & positive qualities that can be drawn on to help make therapy a positive, enriching, and productive experience. Let's work together so you can live your best life. No matter where you've been or what you've been through or how much money you have or don't have, there's ALWAYS hope! You can get an appointment within the next 7 days. Guaranteed! Finances should never stand between you & getting really good counseling or coaching.
I've worked extensively w clients experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, couple's issues, parenting/step-parenting struggles, & behavior problems w kids & teenagers. My background includes helping w men's issues, divorce recovery, & relational difficulties. I work hard to help clients establish values-based goals & keep counseling focused & moving forward.
I'm also a nondenominational pastor who can talk with anyone who wants to include a faith-based perspective & draw on spiritual resources in time of need. I feel privileged and blessed to work with people from virtually all faiths & walks of life, including agnostic/atheist, & secular/humanist worldviews. I respect & honor each person's journey. Thank you!
