My Approach to Helping

I respond to you with urgency. The most important factor in counseling is the connection between you and me. All the experience and methodology in the world is not a substitute for a positive relationship. It is exciting for me to be with someone that is committed to making positive changes in their life.

As a former senior level executive, I specialize in meeting the needs of talented, busy professionals that have unique challenges in the their work and family lives.

My ideal client is one who has a strong desire to make meaningful changes in their life. Commitment and a desire to work hard are integral. If you're willing to to put in the time and effort, then I am too.

I have a 25 year career as a senior financial executive with Dell Computer, Neiman Marcus Stores and Kay Jewelers Stores. Now as a licensed counselor I incorporate those experiences into mental health treatment and career/life coaching. I have been a practicing therapist for over 10 years.

I have helped many clients deal with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and relationship issues. I can also help you develop skills to connect more effectively with people to increase success at home and work.

I understand what it is like to suffer with issues and/or circumstances that prevent enjoying life to its fullest. The pursuit of joy in life is a noble mission that I encourage my clients to embrace. Connection and emotional intimacy with others is a skill that can be taught and mastered with practice. I believe that it is through this type of connection we find our joy in the home and workplace.

If you're ready to embark on a rewarding adventure, I'm ready to join you!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have extensive experience with depression, anxiety and inter-personal relationship challenges. In particular my extensive business background uniquely qualifies me to help with workplace challenges.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I enjoy seeing people grow and succeed. The experience of seeing someone transform from a difficult situation to a place of joy is an honor and privilege that I shall never tire of.

My Role as a Therapist
