About me

I’m a psychologist with more than 25 years of experience. I love counseling and working with individuals and couples. The joy of discovering a solution for a problem with someone and see them grow and thrive excites me. No one is perfect and at times, we all need help. It is a mistake trying to solve problems alone. I see counseling as the undiscovered gem in human functioning – far too many people miss the opportunity of working with a trained and skilled counselor to aid them on the journey to figure out a plan through their challenge. I’m glad you are considering this option and there is a reason that you are reading my profile. I would love working with you.
