Verified by Psychology Today

I listen carefully and respond thoughtfully. I have been in practice for over 30 years and bring rich life experience and top-notch training to my work. I am warm, easy to talk to and non-judgmental. An artist in my spare time, I use intuition as well as the rational in my consideration of your issues. We work together to come to an understanding of what is happening, what has happened in the past, and how to change it so that you can achieve happiness and your goals.
