Feel More Optimistic About the Future and Less Angry About the Past
The goal of my life’s work is to help others reduce or eliminate unnecessary suffering. I work with you to maximize your potential and growth so you can access and use your own innate wisdom and healing resources.
For 20+ years, I’ve worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I offer a combination of specialized training and experience that helps me to be with you at various levels, depending on what you need. We can go below the surface, as deep as you want or need to go. Conversely, we might remain closer to the surface until the problem is resolved or you feel ready and safe enough to proceed further. Much of this is often unclear at the beginning of therapy, but together we can cut through defenses or other blocks to your healing and discover what is truly driving the issues that are bringing you to counseling.
I’ve been married for more than 25 years and have two grown children. In addition to my family, I love my work, animals, dancing, exercising, the earth, and music.
