My Approach to Helping

In a relaxed and productive environment, I guide people in how to experience a greater sense of fulfillment and authenticity in their lives and relationships. I’ve been a licensed therapist for 25 years, and I specialize in couples counseling, stress and anxiety, men’s issues, and helping people who are just struggling with a general sense of dissatisfaction with life. I also specialize in working with partners of narcissists and adults who were impacted by having a narcissistic parent.

My therapy style is nonjudgmental, straightforward, and highly interactive. I offer very direct advice and practical approaches to solving problems. I also use humor in therapy often! We’ll discuss very serious issues in counseling, but I also hope that at the appropriate times I can make you smile and laugh too. Please explore my website to learn more about me and how I can help you move forward.
