About My Clients

My clients are all ages -- all whose potential and strengths I help each person to realize. Over twenty years experience helping adults, children, and adolescents overcome obstacles to greater happiness and success. I bring out and support the special qualities of each and every person at their own level, and provide support, insight, understanding and practical solution focused guidance and assistance.

My Background and Approach

By nature, inclination, temperament, and aspiration, I have always been a natural counselor. People always seem to feel comfortable with me, telling me their life stories and coming to me for help. They somehow know they will get warm rapport, understanding, and creativity while being treated with kindness, respect, and sensitivity. I have a graduate education, training, multiple and evolving skills, and DECADES of experience in clinical, school, and community settings with people of all ages and backgrounds. What should someone know about working with you? Counseling, coaching, and therapy — no matter who they’re for — are about trust first and foremost. Do you trust your heart, mind, soul, feelings, truths, aspirations, and delicate inner-self in the hands of this other person? While recognizing this, the core of my work and engagement with you involves kindness, caring, compassion, and creativity, which comes out of my sincere desire to help.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the power inside you to grow, heal, and cope and to find solutions and strength from inside.
