About this pro

Short term & crisis intervention focused to get clients back into life.

Willing to travel or utilize technology.

Licensed in 1988.

Private practice since 1997

I enjoy assisting with life's problems and helping people get back into life ASAP.

I am an internship site for various universities and can provide a master or doctoral student who is working toward licensure at a much lower price. I will be supervising each session students do with you. So, it's like having two therapists.
