After thirty years of practice as a psychotherapist and twenty years of teaching graduate students my primary goals remain the same: I intend to help clients discover their own strengths and resources. I enjoy empowering clients to confidently utilize their abilities to improve the quality of life and experience healing recovery from crises. An ideal client allows me to work jointly with them in a partnership to enjoy a sense of their own worth and resilience.
I work in the following speciality areas: Anxiety disorders Grief and Loss recovery Hypnosis for healthy eating habits Dreamwork interpretation Sleep disorders Depression disorders
I have an appreciation for the spiritual dimension of a client’s life. I respectfully work a client’s sources of inspiration and their search for meaning and purpose in their world.
I am an experienced mental health and addictions counselor. I provide psychotherapy services to individuals, couples and families I take pride in providing a comfortable and supportive atmosphere. I will help you realize what powerful resources you have within yourself to achieve your goals and meet your needs. I believe everyone should be able to take control of there life.
I have been trained in long and short term models of therapy. Cognitive Behavioral, Humanistic, Jungian, Psychodynamic, and Family Systems are the methods mostly used in my practice.
Extra training and experience with LGBTQ issues; short or long term individual therapy, couples work, and blended family methods, offer a very well rounded approach. We can focus on solving specific problems or explore the deeper psyche. It’s all connected.
