I have extensive experience as a therapist, working successfully with adults, families , couples and children.

My background professionally is varied. I have worked in community mental health centers, in an elementary school as a counseling consultant, in a pediatric hospital and adjunctive cancer treatment setting, and in my private practice. I have also taught in universities. My emphasis is always on understanding and connecting well with my clients. My perspective is holistic, and I often utilize Energy Psychology techniques with my clients, enabling them most often to make quick and lasting changes through utilizing take-home tools that empower them to improve their lives meaningfully.

Many of my clients have anxiety and mood disorders, and frequently they can make the desired progress in a timely matter, though I see people longer term if that is required. I have considerable experience in assisting people who have have been traumatized in a variety of ways and can support them emotionally and help them function more optimally, often integrating powerful and effective tools to do so. Also, I am personally very concerned about climate change and environmental issues, and can assist clients with distress in these areas.

While not technically ADA accessible, my office is accessible for the vast majority of people.
