About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    My clients describe and a combination of down to earth, compassionate, knowledgeable, and warm. I empower my clients to be fully themselves.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    Rather than taking a one size fits all approach, I work with each client, couple, or family to tailor their own unique success plans that often combine a variety of techniques and strategies based on their preferences and requirements.

  • Together, we will:

    Together we will collaborate to bring your life in line with how you would ideally like it be. We will empower you to be more fully yourself, to be in control of your choices, and to act consciously in ways that will allow your desired outcomes.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    I tend to work best with clients who want to bring their actual life more in line with how they really want it to be. People describe this various ways, such as to become more self-actualized, to live more consciously/mindfully/intentionally, etc.

  • I became a therapist because:

    A major life event that resulted in my becoming a Psychologist was my parents divorce when I was a child, and the impact that had on us all.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    When appropriate and if desired, I integrate teaching of mindfulness, meditation, and self hypnosis in support of the changes my clients make.

  • More about me and my practice:

    One thing to know about me is that I have been practicing and teaching Buddhist meditation and philosophy for years. I don't try to push it on my clients, but if they are interested I am glad to integrate this into the therapy.
