With over 20 years of experience in private practice, I have developed a gentle and caring approach to my work with clients. I provide a safe environment in which to explore troubling issues, gain insight into life patterns and improve self-esteem and confidence. I am skilled in early evaluation and assessment of your needs, and working together we can determine the best therapeutic course to meet your goals.

I have worked extensively with children, adolescents, couples and families and have taught courses in Marriage and Family Therapy and seminars in Child and Adolescent therapy to graduate level students and also supervised interns in both clinic and private practice settings. As a Registered Nurse as well as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am experienced in issues of health, chronic and life threatening illness, and loss and grief.
