I have been in private practice for more than 20 years and have over 30 years of direct clinical experience. My approach to counseling is to develop a respectful and meaningful connection with each client through compassion and understanding. I provide a comfortable, safe, non-judgmental atmosphere to nurture self-understanding and support. We'll work collaboratively to address whatever is bothering you right now and your goals for therapy. I combine warmth, respect, insight, guidance, and inclusiveness combined with the utilization of tools derived from solution focused therapy, mindfulness, CBT, and EMDR to equip you to have the skills to better manage your life, and in the process, obtain overall wellness, greater peace and joy.
