My Approach to Helping

Living life to its fullest is easier said than done. What are the obstacles in your way? Are you facing challenges of the human condition? If you are seeking a more authentic state of being and willing to engage in self-exploration, I am experienced in expediting the process of helping you to achieve your personal goals.

Therapeutic exploration will identify problem areas creating limitations, teach you how to build on your strengths, overcome weaknesses, improve your ability to assert yourself, enhance your potential to make better choices, aim to restore balance and improve the overall quality of your life. Whether you are attempting to alter unproductive patterns, destructive thoughts and behaviors, or alleviating overwhelming feelings you will find that therapy can assist you. I can help you move forward by learning new and alternative ways of coping and thus, reclaim increased enjoyment and success.

I work with adolescents, adults and elders. Additionally, I have extensive experience with couples counseling, premarital counseling, complex family issues, work related issues, professional and personal mediation, career planning and executive coaching.

I bring a compassionate approach and a guiding spirit that facilitates moving towards a healthier state of being. My eclectic and individually focused approach is drawn from my graduate education, life experiences and other professional training. I have traveled worldwide, developing an appreciation for diverse cultures, faiths, and alternative lifestyles. My clients come from all walks of life.

I welcome and appreciate the opportunity to work with you while providing expertise, warmth, and understanding in a safe, explorative environment.
