Welcome to my website.
Here you will find information about me, details about my practice, and something about my approach and values in my work with clients.
I view each person as a unique individual with a life story, a particular family history, including past and present relationships, which make up their world and their sense of self. After first dealing with the symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety and finding strategies to reduce and relieve these, I take time to review the whole story, and with this context a clearer picture comes into focus and you can find a forward direction.
The essential goal of therapy, in my view, is achieving wholeness of self, being who you truly are, and navigating the stresses and barriers you face in a practical way: reducing any anxieties or depressive tendencies holding you back. In other words, working together, towards a more fulfilling, joyful life. I think of counseling as shorter term work on a specific problem with specific goals sometimes related to work issues.
I bring more than 30 years of experience in various settings, as a Psychotherapist, College Instructor, Trainer, and Writer, - as well as my own unique history of learning, family, and relationships - to the work that I do.
Please look at the About Me and other pages for more detailed information about myself, the location of my practice, rates, and so forth.
