My Approach

I partner with individuals/families in a relationship of mutual trust and respect to assist them in solving their problems. When working with couples and families, I often work from a structural/strategic orientation. When working with an individual, I often use a Solution Focused approach. Virtual sessions are available through the HIPAA compliant platform

About me

I've been providing therapy to individuals, couples, and families in a variety of settings for twenty years. I've also reared four children of my own and assisted in caring for multiple grandchildren. Additionally I cared for my parents through the decline of their health until their passing.

Getting Help

I respect each client as a human being with personal and unique needs. I do not tell clients what to do, but I will assist you in thinking through the options and possible consequences of your decisions. I help to facilitate the change that the client(s) choose, but the responsibility for change ultimately rests with the client.
