With over twenty years’ clinical experience, I will use a collaborative approach to identify and build on your strengths.  We will address current stress, expand emotional intelligence and heal the past.  I offer meditation skills to support you in developing a rejuvenated life.

Your healing and growth are built on a foundation of deep listening, caring and understanding.  We will partner to explore, understand, enhance and stabilize your mental health.  You will be encouraged to value what you know, augment it with new perspectives and tools, and attain your goals for well-being.
