Helping clients to know themselves, accept themselves, and express themselves more authentically and effectively in every aspect of their lives.
I work with adults (18 years and older) on concerns related to anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, sexuality, intimacy, and relationship issues of every kind. I am an engaged, non-judgmental listener, a source of nurturing and support, and will be an active partner in the project of improving your life. I approach everyone -- every gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, relationship status, and age group, whether in traditional or non-traditional relationships -- with compassion and enthusiasm.
For over three decades, it has been my privilege to help my clients know themselves, accept themselves, and express themselves more authentically and effectively in every aspect of their lives. We have candid conversations on topics that might be difficult or unproductive for them to share with friends and family. Some have been trapped for years in avoidance, feeling out of control, or suffering from anxiety and/or the consequences of past trauma. Others are looking to create or recapture love, intimacy, and satisfying sexuality. Together we steadily create the changes they desire in their lives.
Whether you need help navigating an especially challenging time in your life, or launching yourself in a positive new direction, I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals.
I hope the information on this site helps you begin or continue the journey of reducing your anxiety, improving your relationships, and expanding your horizons.

When a client does not a have a personal partner to help them resolve inhibitions and dysfunctions in the areas of physical and emotional intimacy, I may recommend Surrogate Partner Therapy. For some, clients this unique form of therapy is indeed the correct, appropriate and necessary adjunct to counseling. I provide assessment, referrals, guidance, supervision, and support for both client and surrogate partner throughout the therapy.
