About Me

I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in New Mexico and have been providing marriage and family therapy for more than 30 years. I am also a pastoral counselor and have worked with clients from a range of spiritual/religious traditions including Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, and some Native American traditions. I have specialized in relationship counseling, family therapy, issues related to aging, parenting, divorce adjustment issues (including co-parenting), family violence, and anger management. I am also an organizational consultant with expertise working with non-profit organizations and family businesses.

I believe that people are able to create solutions that help them live more satisfying and meaningful lives. Most of my work focuses on helping people in difficult or challenging relationships develop solutions for the challenges they face. I bring a Solution-Focused Brief Therapy approach to my work with a wide range of clients including those in the Collaborative Family Law arena-- as a Parent Coordinator, Divorce Coach, and Mediator.

Helping clients achieve their preferred futures keeps my work creative and energizing for me and for my clients. My clients also benefit from my Pastoral Counseling perspective through which they can integrate emotional, relational, and spiritual aspects of their therapy. I bring my systems approach into my work with family businesses and organizations, primarily non-profit organizations.

Please note that my schedule is somewhat limited. I have set time aside for Better Help clients on Monday and Thursday mornings as well as on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons (New Mexico time). If your schedule can work with mine, we may have a great match!

I look forward to helping you create solutions that enrich your life!
