Rest assured, with over 30 Years of counseling experience working with Individuals and Couples, I know that therapy can work.  It is possible, through effective counseling,  to bring about powerful changes in your life.  My style of counseling is professional, compassionate, and solution-focused.  I strive to create a warm, non judgmental, and safe therapeutic environment. Goal oriented, I assist by providing you with options and tools necessary to make effective changes in your life.  When put into practice, these tools and new techniques will create the changes that you are looking for.
