About me

I am a licensed psychotherapist and certified life coach, who has over 28 years of experience counseling clients of all ages with respect to the varied concerns and/or challenges they may be confronting. Additionally, I have advanced clinical training in the areas of children, adolescents, and families. Plus, for 20 years, I have worked as a Professor of Graduate Social Work Studies in three major academic institutions. My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, working with those who have concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting issues, substance use disorders, relationship problems, and career challenges. For example:

- The executive who is attempting to determine his or her next move and needs a sounding board.
- The overwhelmed collegiate who wants to increase his or her academic performance.
- The exhausted parent.
- The man or woman who is having relationship anxiety and stress, particularly over power struggles.
- The wounded warrior/veteran who is having adjustment issues.
- The person who is experiencing feelings of abandonment, sadness, and/or grief.

My counseling style is one of support, honesty, understanding, and non-judgment. Also, it is important to note that I tend to be more solution-focused as opposed to problem-focused. My ultimate goal is to help each client free him-, her-, or themselves from the heavy burdens they carry and move on to a life of happiness, joy, and fulfillment.

I truly applaud your courage in facing and desiring to positively change the challenges with which life has bought to you at this time. Please know that it will be my honor to partner with you in creating the successful life of your dreams.
