Looking for guidance when life situations are overwhelming is a sign of health and maturity. I believe in emphasizing and building on strengths and connecting with abilities with which you may have lost connection.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have worked with couples and families for over 24 years to help them overcome obstacles to a better family relationship.

I am active in the counseling process and will give you input and observations.  I am not just a passive listener.  Together, we can find solutions to your concerns.  You CAN turn things around and make progress.

I am a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor and help people with addictive problems to avoid relapse risks, overcome obstacles, and move on to a life of sobriety.  My experience as a recovering alcoholic/addict with more than 25 years in recovery helps me relate to others who want to be sober.

As a clinical hypnotherapist, I want to help you engage your subconscious mind in the healing process.  The subconscious mind is a powerful ally.  I am a Certified Diplomate in Clinical Hypnotherapy with over 20 years of experience in using hypnosis  to clear traumas, reduce fears and phobias, end habits like smoking or other addictions, and help with weight loss, sports enhancement, pain management, or additional personal issues.

Facing the tough “givens” of life can greatly test our capacity to cope in a healthy way. My goal is to help you identify and remove obstacles that block your path to living a more meaningful and authentic life. My intention is to create a safe, supportive, and empathic atmosphere that facilitates your growth and progress. It is my hope that our work together will offer you the opportunity to examine your internal resources and skills. Using these tools will empower you to assume responsibility for creating the life you want to live. My experience includes helping clients with issues such as: intellectual and developmental disabilities, mood disorders, personality disorders, trauma, grief/loss, marital and family issues, and substance use issues.
