My Approach

I have had training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in addition to Solution Focused Therapy. I also have experience and enjoy doing insight oriented therapy. Through my years of professional and personal life experience, I have come to strongly believe in the strength of the individual and one’s capacity for wisdom, resilience and and healing. Through mutual collaboration and interaction, obstacles to growth and change can be identified and addressed, often resulting in increased hope and faith in the ability to live a more fulfilling and rewarding life.

My Background

I have over twenty five years experience in the field of mental health and human services and have worked in various settings including adoptions, hospitals, and family counseling agencies. I have held positions as a clinician, supervisor (of other mental health clinicians), consultant, and manager. For 10 years I was affiliated with an Anxiety Disorders Clinic where I developed a specialty in treating anxiety disorders including general anxiety disorder, OCD, social anxiety, and separation anxiety. I also have extensive experience treating depression. I enjoy seeing individuals, couples, and families in my private practice.
