My Approach to Helping

I believe that people have the resources inside of them to heal but often we just don't know that and it takes someone else to help us find that. I have a very straight-forward, direct, approach and I'm very active with my clients in sessions. Having been in practice for over thirty years I have a wide variety of approaches to situations. My career-long work with trauma victims has left me with a deep understanding of what that is like. I particularly enjoy working with couples. A significant portion of my career has been spent working with children and families. However, I firmly believe responsibility, structure and accountability are vital to raising a healthy child and so the parents need to be on board with that. I also employ hypnotherapy and equine assisted techniques in my practice. I also do televideo therapy. I really look forward to working with you and seeing how we can enhance your life.

More Info About My Practice

I accept almost all insurances as well as personal payments. I offer evening appointment times and try hard to work with your schedule.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Therapy is a highly personal journey that is most effective when you truly like and connect with the therapist. Since all people have different personalities and viewpoints it is important to understand that in the event you had a negative experience with one therapist that doesn't mean therapy isn't valuable it simply means you need to keep looking to find the therapist that works for you.
