Counseling to Help You Reach Your Personal Goals

As a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Doctorate in Psychology, I work therapeutically with clients who are facing difficulties such as depression, anxiety, and relationship struggles resulting from deeper issues that often relate to the family of origin.

My areas of specialization include:

  • Marriage and family
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Life transitions
  • Self-esteem and self-image
  • Spirituality
  • Life vocations/careers
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress and coping skills
  • Other related concerns

As a Life Coach, I work more from a problem-solving and goal-setting perspective, helping clients reach their personal life goals. I’ve worked with many clients over the years on non-therapeutic concerns such as family (parenting, blended families, raising children in divorced families, aging parents, death and dying, etc.) and business (interpersonal relations on the job, returning to work in later life, career choices and uncertainties, juggling family and career, etc.).

Sometimes our life struggles demand a spiritual response. As a Spiritual Director (trained through the HeartPaths Spirituality program), I add a spiritual dimension to my work upon the client’s request, either separately or in conjunction with my counseling or life coaching.

My personal philosophy is simple.

I believe we are created with a divine plan, a purpose that is unique to each of us.

I believe that divine plan or purpose is related to what we call the soul.

I believe that our life challenge is to grow in understanding of that divine plan and become the person each of us is called to be.

I am available for counseling during the week (typically 8:00-4:00) and on Saturdays (typically 8:00-2:30).
