Psychological Counseling from a Spiritual Perspective

I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 30 years, offering empathic, supportive, growth-oriented psychotherapy to individual adults and couples.

My style is personal and interactive, and my clients find me understanding, caring and easy to relate to. 
I create a safe and nurturing environment for you to explore your concerns about issues such as relationships, career, addictions, childhood trauma, life purpose, depression, gender issues, spirituality and stress.

I can help you to clarify issues, identify options, and make the changes you desire.  Our work together can have many benefits, including enhancing the quality of your relationships, refining your communication skills, improving your self care, and helping you to be more aligned with your most deeply-held values.
