    Biography

    No one gets through the bumps of life unscathed. We all could use someone to help us through life’s ups and downs. Contemplating a change, coping with loss, eating healthy, staying fit, raising children, blending families, getting married or considering divorce are not “do-it-yourself” projects. I believe that people know intuitively when they need the help of a skilled guide but, the myths surrounding counseling can often get in their way.
    The truth about face-to-face and internet counseling is that it works best when you are ready. Scheduling an appointment is the first step in resolving a problem. It is not a sign of weakness and you don’t need a serious problem to benefit from counseling. People with everyday concerns such as adjustments or phase of life issues also can get results from counseling too.

    Patients who see me or seek my internet services are usually feeling stressed, stuck, anxious, depressed, lost, ashamed, guilty, or unforgiving about some portion of their lives. They are looking for lasting results, not quick fixes. I found that a combination of Cognitive Behavior, Neuroscience and Acceptance and Commitment Therapies works best. In addition, I offer nutritional, wellness and lifestyle coaching too. Remember I am only a phone call or email away.



    I truly love working with all kinds of people and of all ages. Establishing rapport and trust, goal setting, solution focused intervention, maintenance and discharge planning stages are all valuable to building a successful working relationship with all my patients.


    From time to time, we all need someone to talk to about our woes and what is keeping us stuck. I love helping people help themselves. I have been fortunate to see how many people have turned their lives around over the course of my 25 years of practice.


    Writing articles and books. I also dance, workout, and design jewelry.
