DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

For over 20 years, I have worked with a diverse clientele and a wide range of problems. I work with adults and children, groups, couples and individuals, bringing warmth and understanding to the relationships and life problems that surround us. I trust that people come to therapy seeking a more authentic happiness; I support, and when needed, challenge clients to let go of concepts and mistaken views of themselves that have led to more pain and confusion. I bring compassion, attunement, and appreciation for the whole person to each unique client session.
