Counseling with Understanding
Relationship Specialist
Adolescents are my specialty. I deal with all relationship issues from interpersonal difficulties to difficulties in the work place. Grief and loss issues are also a speciality. If previous counseling has been ineffective, don't worry. Each counselor is different and only you are the judge of what works best for you.
I gladly discuss my philosphies of counseling with each and every client and do my utmost to meet
your goals. You set the goals - I provide the tools to enable you to successfully reach them. We work together to facilitate resolution of presenting problems as efficiently, yet thoroughly, as possible.

Born in the state of California...raised in a military family so had multiple addresses as a youth. Frequent locality changes as a military dependent provided a supplemental education to my formal education.
