You have come to this site because you are seeking answers and solutions. The people I see are often stuck, confused, defeated, sad and angry or struggling with similar feelings. For over 15 years I’ve worked with diverse populations and individuals addressing depression, anxiety, stress, unresolved grief, loss and trauma incidents, relationship and parenting issues. I strive to create a judgment free environment for all clients allowing them the freedom to discover new perspectives, new approaches; enhancing the growth and change process. I focus on what is blocking that natural healing process.
Life can be challenging for all of us due to the (turbulent) violent, unstable world we live in. A balanced, contented, full filled life often slips away from us. One can be depleted and discouraged trying to finding the time and resources necessary to care for emotional needs. If facing life’s challenges has you bewildered, stuck, incapacitated…..Now can be your chance for a change. The problems you are struggling with can be a valuable source of information which can guide you in the direction of healing, growth and change. My personal philosophy is that challenges and or crisis situations can be viewed as a window of opportunity to learn new problem solving strategies. The human Spirit is an amazing thing, we have the resources available within to over come obstacles that prevent us from being at peace. I work to empower my patients, by teaching them to listen to their bodies, mind, soul and spirit. I offer free, 15 minute, phone consultations to determine if my skills will meet your specific mental health counseling needs.

“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.” Henry David Thoreau
The person I’m about to tell you about was my husband. He was not only my husband but a very dear, close, personal, friend of mine. He was an amazing man. He stood 5’6” tall but was a giant among men. He was a giant because of his attributes. He had a positive attitude and a Spirit that would not admit defeat. He was compassionate and generous to all he met. He was highly skilled in his field and respected among his peers. He was a friend to many, when he met someone, he assessed them on their own merits, not looks, money, or status.
He struggled with lung cancer for the last 5 years of his life. He refused to give up, he lived in the moment and relished life to the fullest. He never complained about his illness. The picture you see was taken 2 months before he died. Every summer he and his buddies would go fishing in Alaska. He caught many fish on his last trip to Alaska. As I look at the photo, I am reminded of his amazing Spirit, he was physically weak yet strong. His strength came from his resources within, his confidence, his positive attitude, his genuine interest and unconditional love for man kind, his generosity, his curiosity about life and his work ethic. His life inspired me to believe in myself, to believe in the power of Spirit and the power of love.
