About this pro

My training and life experience prepared me to change my life and help you change yours. I started in an adversarial role as a litigation paralegal, working for plaintiffs, against defendants.I didn't like being the "wedge" between parties.  I got my Masters in Social Work and was a Coordinator for a Rape Crisis Program  where I wore many hats — a therapist, fundraiser, and community educator. After several years, I went back to school again for my Ph.D. and got an internship at a women’s prison where I developed the group counseling program. I continue as a consultant/psychotherapist/group counselor/trainer for the Department of Corrections. Instead of becoming a professor as originally planned, I opened a private practice in 2000 where I continue to learn and grow with my clients. I work with adults who want to know themselves fully, live spontaneously, and more easily connect with others. I provide honest feedback, because I believe that if we can understand our patterns and make different choices, we can create a better life.

I am an optimistic, energetic therapist who loves helping adults develope a full life worth living. I love watching the "light bulb" turn on as people get a different perspective and begin experimenting with changing habits that, in the past, they thought were impossible to change.
