Licensed Clinical Social Worker


Successful counseling is built on a positive and trusting relationship, much as successful living is dependent on trusting, healthy relationships. Most importantly I bring myself; my heart, my humor, my understanding, knowledge and years of experience.

Issues I Treat


  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    My approach to couples counseling is a blend of Gestalt therapy and Emotionally Focused therapy. I listen with an open mind and heart and speak with compassion and understanding . It is not my role to pass judgement. I work to support people in finding their own voice in asking for what they need and want.

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety can take many forms, what is consistent across the board is the discomfort of anxiety. In addition to talk therapy I introduce people to the aplha stim machine. Through micro current waves the brain moves from agitated state to a more relaxed brain wave...the alpha wave. Helpful anxiety, depression and sleep issues.

  • Aspergers External link

    My work with people diagnosed as being on the Asperger's spectrum is to be both therapist and coach. Healing from a lifetime of feeling different and learning ways to be more effective in social and emotional situations.
