As a professional with many years of practice, I bring to my work as a therapist considerable experience. I find that a multi-generational perspective is useful relating to the current issue the client faces. Historically, I also like to know about relational and job decisions in the clients' family of origin that may be impacting current life choices. Once we both have a grasp of forces that may have affected decision-making, I try to move the client to make positive changes that lead to improved physical, emotional, spiritual and financial well-being. I work out of more than one office location.

The heart of my approach to counseling centers on relationship.In my opinion, the counseling relationship becomes the foundation for meaningful change; a conduit of hope and healing for those who have been wounded. As I welcome a new client, I am primarily interested in creating a safe base and secure haven of trust from which to work. Facing our struggles and confronting our issues can be painful at times. My commitment to my clients is to walk alongside them through the struggles they are currently facing and teach them more adaptive ways to manage their lives.
