Practice Information
With more than 30 years of clinical experience, my clients (adults, couples and groups) tell me they most appreciate my patience, insight and good humor. I believe deeply in my clients' abilities to find their truth when met with skill and honesty offered without judgment.

Many come people come to me with trauma-based issues. It is essential for fear and frustration to be addressed in ways that are both effective and tolerable. I often use EMDR as well as EFT - Meridian Tapping and Mindfulness Practices to help clients move through painful memories and/or negative, limiting self-beliefs which get in the way of high performance and joyful living.

I do not practice "cookie cutter" therapy - each client is unique in his or her needs. The first thing I do with each person is listen. Then, together, we work out a plan that will meet your needs in the safest, most respectful and efficient way possible.
