I am honored to create a safe and nurturing space for my clients to sort out their concerns, access their feelings, inner wisdom and strengths, while they find solutions, peace and harmony within themselves, at home, work and play.

My life experience as a mother, grandmother, foster parent, founder and executive director of APPLE FamilyWorks enriches my appreciation for the challenges faced today in this very complex world. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches to identify what is working well and what fresher approaches may bring more hope, comfort and joy into each individual's life.

I am available to meet at my therapy office, at clients' homes, their children's schools or provide consultations at the workplace. After initial sessions at my office, in times of illness or emergency therapy can be provide by phone.

I look forward to meeting new clients and welcome an initial phone interview.
