My Approach to Helping

I strive to create a comfortable and productive environment that will empower you to experience a greater sense of direction and fulfillment in your life. I’ve been a licensed therapist for 25 years and my specialty is helping adults who are struggling with stress and anxiety, relationship problems, and depression. I also specialize in working with partners of narcissists and adults who were impacted by having a narcissistic parent. In addition to counseling I provide life and executive coaching and conduct workshops and presentations for schools and businesses.

My therapy style is interactive, straight-forward, and open-minded. I use humor in therapy, a lot. Please explore this website to learn more about who I am and how I can help.
