My Approach to Helping

I am still amazed by how much I learn from my clients and how often your stories of overcoming sadness and adversity move and inspire me. I intertwine this knowledge with 37 years of professional counseling experience to individuals, children and families. I Google to stay current with wellness, brain-based research and developing treatments and do my best to pay all that I have learned forward.

My style is interactive and collaborative and I've found that well-timed, compassionate humor can, oftentimes, alleviate emotional pain. I am willing to share part of my ups and downs as an adoptive parent of a special needs mentally ill child (now a successful adult) and former caretaker of aging parents without getting in the way of your work.

You are a unique individual, influenced by your life experience, family, culture, spiritual beliefs, places you have lived and worked and your heredity. If you are experiencing difficulty in finding your balance and inner strength, or are facing challenges in your relationships or career goals, I will listen, support and provide you with the tools you need to achieve success.
