I am a Clinical Social Worker helping adults, older adolescents, couples, individuals who want to enhance their lives no matter what issue brings them into treatment. I use strength based, solution focused therapy to help you grow to be the best possible version of you. Men especially find me helpful where other therapists have not been a good fit for them.

I have my private practice with a focus on mental health recovery, drug/alcohol harm reduction or marital/relationship issues. I specialize in substance use recovery, working with men & older adolescents who are leery about talking "feelings." I work successfully with those who struggle with religious or spiritual questions that they want to clarify for themselves. "One becomes whole not in relationship to yourself alone but rather in an authentic relationship to another human." Martin Buber
