Usual Office Hours:

I've been a practicing psychotherapist for over 20 years. It is a privilege to have you come in and be open to change for the better. I love to find ways to bring out the very best in people, helping them to be in touch with who they really are - their higher self as I describe it.

My Approach

If you have never been to talk with a counselor, I assure you that I will do my best to help you feel safe and relaxed. As a seasoned therapist there is not much new that I haven't heard or helped people find ways to deal with and resolve in a more satisfactory manner. I value your trust in feeling you can share your burden and leave feeling better than when you came in. I don't think most people need endless sessions of therapy unless there has been serious traumas. Often just talking about things with someone who has no invested interest is very helpful. I work with you to make these decisions in what you are seeking.

My Background

I have dual degree: B.S. in Psychology and Sociology and a Master of Science in Counseling, Education & Psychology. I am licensed as a Marriage Counselor with many years of continuing educations in specialties in the field.
