Orientation & Approach

I welcome clients who are interested in facing the challenges presented by our rapidly changing world.  My years of working as both a counselor and a nurse have infused me with a deep respect for the potential within each of us.  I believe in building a base of trust and respect with my clients from which we unfold their unique process of inner discovery.

I enjoy teaching clients what I consider to be the differences between learning and growing.  Each of us holds beliefs and very real patterns of behavior designed  to help us cope with life's experiences.  Some of these beliefs and behaviors age better than others.  Quite naturally some become obstacles.  I encourage my clients to explore what drives their feelings, thoughts and behaviors.  As we question meanings and consider new possibilities we invite change.  This kind of psychological change impacts us on every level.  It is my privilege to actively participate in a therapeutic relationship that facilitates being aware and present in the here and now.


Personal Comments

One of the main reasons I became a psychotherapist was due to a need to give back to my community.  Many years ago when I was struggling to survive I had the good fortune to work with several wonderful clinicians.  My life was profoundly changed.  To this day I value my membership in this caring community.  No man or woman is an island.  We all need support throughout our lives, though it wears many faces and comes in a variety of forms.  

Maintaining ones health is a complex issue, involving the needs of the whole person.  It is my deliberate choice to be present with my clients while they discover new ways of integrating body, mind and spirit.  It is my intent to create a safe place, a sanctuary where clients learn how to heal and grow.
