Treatment Focus


Within a professional, safe and confidential setting, healing and growth occurs.  Informed by Relational and Attachment therapy, my services focus on broadening emotional capacities, expanding psychological awareness, and applying strategic thinking to problems at hand. With this focus relationships soon balance and brighten.

The Patient Promise


Effective therapy work requires a good fit. A “Greet and Meet” allows people to judge their comfort with my services; and I assess whether their situation falls within my area of expertise. If the client decides it’s a good fit, we proceed as a team dedicated to problem solving, healing and growth. .

Look for rainbows –they auger hope during the storm


Sooner or later tangled complexities befall us all. Childhood traumas, relational conflict, anger in the family, addictive & compulsive behaviors, personal anxiety / depression; describe some of the conditions that can be addressed within my clinical setting.
