When people come to see me in my office, they find a warm and friendly atmosphere in a professional setting. They tell me that I’m easy to talk to and feel comfortable talking about their issues. My style is conversational— two people having a conversation to produce change. my cognitive-behavioral approach to counseling allows me to work well with adults who have issues with depression, anxiety or addictive behaviors. In addition, I also work with couples who are having relationship issues.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Certified Addictions Specialist (CAS) and Substance Abuse Professional (SAP), National Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist(NBCCH), as well as a chapter advisor for the Depression Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA).

I have worked in the counseling field for the past 38 years.
