“I consider it an honor to be able to facilitate the healing process. It is a privilege when  a client invites me to assist in overcoming life challenges. I believe the human spirit is extraordinary in its ability to grow and flourish in the midst of suffering.  In fact , character is fortified by adversity. However, no one should have to face difficulties alone. We are social creatures. A story comes to life when shared.

I utilize my three decades of professional experience to alleviate pernicious symptoms. This may include depression, emotional chaos, relationship difficulty, addiction, trauma, major mental illnesses ,and/or other issues. The therapeutic alliance fosters the safe exporation  of possible solutions to problems . The goal is for my clients to live happy and productive lives.
