I specialize in working with people in transitions. This includes, Couples, Individuals and Families as well as children over the age of 8 and adolescents. I also work with people with chronic pain and illness. In addition, I do trauma work.
I have been working in this field for over 30 years. It is my passion. I see it as my calling. I love the experience of seeing people feel happier and able to negotiate their lives in a positive way through their personal growth. I enjoy seeing their relationships blossom. I also like the challenge of helping people move through their own personal trauma and reclaim their personal freedom from pain.

My style is to begin working right away in the first session. I like to assess the problem areas and begain establishing preliminary goals right away.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been practicing for over 35 years. I am certified in EMDR, a strategy that is used to overcome the effects of trauma.
I am a provider for a number of insurance companies. I have contracted rates that are different with each company. If I do not have a contract with your company my rate is $120.00 for the first session and $100.00 for the remaining sessions.
I had a passion and strong desire to help other people gain personal strengths and strategies to cope with life challenges from the time I was in my early 20's. I began having my own personal therapy in my early 20's and continue to use the services of a therapist when ever I am having my own personal challenges.
I have worked with all ages and a large variety of issues. I worked in a Children's Department for several years with children and their families. I have specialized in working with adolescents, both in residential treatment setting and in private practice. I have worked with addictions and families of individuals who have addictions. I have worked alot with people going through transitions in which they are experiencing anxiety and depression and well as symptoms related to trauma.
I love to dance. I presently take dance lessons and like to hike.
The connection with the therapist is critical to success.
I would suggest that you identify a brief description of the issues you need help with and ask the clinician if they believe they can help with those.
