Over 25
 years of professional experience can make all the difference

“I’ve been fortunate to have held responsible positions in a variety of professional settings. When I began private practice, I brought along experience in inpatient hospital services, community mental health, university teaching, and public school support services. This has helped me to better understand a wide variety of client concerns.”

A lifetime commitment to continuing education

“My education definitely did not end when I graduated with my Ph.D. I keep up with seminars, conferences, and my own continued personal work, including over 20 years in a monthly, day-long therapists’ consultation group. I bring the results of these dialogues into my work with my clients, individualizing what is used according to the unique characteristics and set of concerns for each.”

A belief in the individual’s core striving for health

“I believe that we human beings have an inherent striving for health in mind and body; and it is in the frustration of basic human needs—through the environment, by our learned responses that don’t work well, and from lack of adequate knowledge and understanding—that we become emotionally distressed. Given an understanding and emotionally safe place to talk about what’s bothering us, we can develop new perspectives and make satisfying changes.”
