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.
