Hello & Welcome

I provide a supportive environment and caring professional relationship to help you achieve your goals through increased self-awareness and step-by-step practical changes. For more than 30 years, I have helped adults cope with difficulties and enjoy life with more meaning and less stress. I treat you as a whole person, taking into consideration your history and the context in which you experience your problems.
