Orientation & Approach

Successful counseling is built on a positive and trusting relationship, much as successful living is dependent on trusting, healthy relationships. I bring a broad array of treatment tools to my work including gestalt, object relations and psychodynamic theory. Most importantly I bring myself; my heart, my humor, my understanding, knowledge and years of experience.

Personal Comments

I have spent most of my professional years exploring the body/mind connection. Why do people sometimes get sick when exposed to illness but not other times? I love the power of belief in the healing process. I strive to give individuals the tools to successfully move forward in their life's, to recognize old myths about their life and have updated more accurate stories to remember about personal strength, wisdom and love.
