A little about me …

I love what I do. My work as a therapist has included working in a county jail, my own private practice, and in community mental health.  I have worked with individuals, families, couples, and groups coming to treatment for a wide range of reasons. I believe everyone has inside of them what they need to have the life of their dreams. I believe passionately we are all created equal, and we all deserve the same access to life’s many blessings.

Witnessing a client experience an aha moment is absolutely thrilling. I have experienced it personally in therapy and it’s my goal in treatment with others. 

When you come to your appointment with me, you might experience …

A warm, energetic, interested therapist who wants to help you achieve what you desire. Therapy is about you—not what your therapist thinks or believes. You will find I believe in my clients’ ability to change, and I will encourage you to do so. My role is to help you remove the obstacles to the life you desire.

 

My training and specialty work includes …

Helping clients with addictions and compulsions, low self-esteem, self-confidence, and/or self-worth, clinical depression and anxiety, uncertainty about a relationship or career path, life transitions, and relationships in conflict.

 

I’m most comfortable working with …

Clients who are open to change. Big changes require trust, openness, courage, and bold action.

 

 In my free time you might find me …

Spending time with my family, including my dogs, Ruthie and Sully. I love an opportunity to demonstrate or march in support of a cause I believe in. I love the chance to see fireworks, a great museum exhibit, a concert, and polar bears at the zoo.
