Marriage and Family Therapist
Career Evaluations and Counseling
Welcome to my website! Please feel free to contact me for a free phone consultation.
I seek to provide a safe, caring, and solution-based environment where my clients can resolve their personal and relationship problems. I have been in private practice as a licensed psychotherapist for 25 years and hold two Masters Degrees in Marriage Family and Career Counseling. As a faculty member at local colleges and universities, I have lectured extensively, written articles, and developed in-depth expertise in the area of interpersonal relations. My approach in the therapeutic environment is holistic, combining both education and therapy. I work conjointly with you to assist in your discovery of "core" issues which may be "blocking" growth or causing dissatisfaction in your life. I then work to provide clear, concise guidance and emotional support in the resolution of these issues. Gaining perspective and strategies, I assist you to be able to make the life changes you want!
If you are looking for a therapist that is nurturing and safe, yet goal oriented and solution focused, you would find that is what I offer my clients. I use a cognitive-behavioral approach, providing options and tools necessary to make immediate changes in your life. I specialize in assisting individuals and couples in creating the life and relationships that are more fulfilling. Every client is unique and I tailor my therapy sessions accordingly.
Problems in our lives, when embraced, offer opportunity for growth. I foster a therapeutic environment that is non-judgemental, and caring, to enable and promote positive self discovery. Please feel free to call or e-mail me with your questions or concerns. I am here to help!
