My Approach to Helping

People find me easy to talk to. I have extensive training as well as an abundance of life experience. I like to clarify and focus quickly on patients' personal goals. I believe that moments of peace can be achieved at point "A" while progress continues toward point "B".

I work with adults and couples. I specialize in all types of relationships including those that we have with our work, our hobbies, our family, friends and romances, our spirituality, intellect and body.

I use an eclectic, holistic approach and together we will find the metaphors that you live by. Sometimes insight is not sufficient for change and so I will also help you take actions to achieve your goals.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I am quite skilled at helping with relationships.
And since I was formerly a professional musician, I am experienced at working with all types of creative people.
In addition, being a widow has taught me many lessons about grief - another specialty area of mine.
If you want to know more about me, feel free to check out my book: Worry less, Arrive Sooner; Dr. Freud Meets Dr. Seuss.
It is an illustrated self-help book that is completely in rhyme.
