About My Clients

In my nearly 40 years of experience I learned everyone has story to tell of pleasures and pains. Anxiety, depression, grief and loss, women's issues, mother/daughter, aging/intergenerational family, inclusivity and diversity issues are just a few stories I've been told. I specialize in individual adults and/or couples to help them write the next chapter or rewrite the troubled one finding answers and strengths, new tools and skills that can lead to creating a more satisfying life.

My Background and Approach

I am a client centered, psychotherapist who uses talk, systems, behavioral and other models to help heal, body, mind and spirit. Clients are more than the struggles they bring to the therapy space. All aspects need nurturing. During my many years in practice, I have learned that "underneath" we want the same things-to be respected, loved, cared about and to feel successful in our lives. I I offer a safe space with no judgement, privacy, healing presence, relationship and open-mindedness for the client to understand oneself and to learn skills, tools that can provide resiliency and vitality to enjoy the good that life has to offer.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe people are good even though we get off track sometimes. When we do, help is needed but it is difficult to ask for. I know and I can help. I love to bake with my granddaughter, do Pilates and go on "adventures". I am LBGTQ+ affirming and believe strongly in inclusivity and diversity. I work toward community with my neighbors and friends to promote peace and well being.
