I have been a licensed therapist for over 20 years and use an unconventional approach to working with clients.  I am honest, caring and appreciative of my clients for opening their lives and hearts to me in order to reveal their experiences, lives and desires. There are many "professionals" who are hanging up their shingles as therapists and are not fully invested in their work. I am invested and grateful to have developed trusting and supportive relationships with my clients in order to move them on to the "next step" that they dream of.

I am also a trained life and executive coach so I tend to focus on goal-setting and self-fulfilling prophecies that create obstacles.


  • Board Certified Diplomate

  • Credentialed Alcoholism Substance Abuse Counselor-Trainee

  • Certified Social Worker in Health Care 

As a licensed clinical social worker for the past 20 years, I work with adults, young adults and adolescents with a wide range of needs. I am a pro-active, down-to-earth psychotherapist, and truly enjoy working together with clients to achieve their short and long term goals. Through collaboration, curiosity and creativity, I will help you become fully present in the "here and now," prioritize goals, break free from dysfunctional patterns, and discover your inner strengths.
