Announcement icon I am currently accepting new clients via teletherapy.
My practice specializes in individual therapy, telemental health, clinical supervision and consultation to schools, and community agencies. I enjoy working with people who are challenged with complex issues, seeking growth and greater understanding of self. I enjoy mentoring therapists, meeting clients via new media and assisting agencies to improve their effectiveness.
I have over 30 years of experience providing individual therapy to adults and adolescents, especially those who are survivors of trauma. I have worked with a wide variety of individuals in many different populations, and from many cultures. I pay particular attention to the spiritual needs of people seeking meaning in their lives.
It takes courage to begin and to persist in therapy. We owe it to ourselves, however, to take those steps that lead to knowledge, understanding and wisdom about who we are, and our potential for growth.
