Feeling anxious, depressed or disconnected from life? Troubled by your or another’s substance use? Apprehensive about a major life change or immobilized by unresolved grief? Twenty-three years of diverse experience affords me the ability to tailor an approach to help you effectively accomplish your goals in therapy. A lengthy tenure in hospital settings has given me a strong knowledge base and mentorship from several talented physicians and therapists. Facilitating the recovery of many from alcoholism and addiction has been immensely rewarding. A 25-year marriage and parenthood provide me with hard-earned insight into relationship and family issues.My style is dynamic, yet compassionate and I balance intensity with a sense of humor. I incorporate principles of both Western and Eastern spirituality into the therapy process when desired and view mindfulness as a powerful tool for self-awareness and healing.My approach is solution-oriented, action-driven and present-focused. When have you not benefited tremendously from work, commitment and a desire to grow? I look forward to learning with you and from you on our journey toward becoming more fully alive.
