step into your space ​

discover your tru​e self​



​H​ello, and welcome to my website.  I am a licensed clinical social worker offering counseling and therapy services for individuals who are interested in becoming their authentic selves.  After counseling clients  for over 30 years in a variety of settings, I have found that relationship between client and therapist is key 

to a successful experience.  I combine a variety of practices, including talk therapy, depth psychology, somatic experiences, and visualization to enable transformation to begin. 

If you find yourself in a transition where you are at a loss what to do or where to turn, counseling is a perfect setting to look at your life.
 Together we will explore your thoughts, behaviors, and coping that perhaps may no longer be useful for you.  Often these confusing periods are opportunities for you to clarify your path.  

  Oprah Winfrey said  "There is a supreme moment of destiny calling on your life. Your job is to feel that, to hear that, to know that."

      This often elusive quest is best experienced with a therapist who can mentor your growth in a safe, secure setting. 

This is the foundation of my approach. 

Psychological Therapies

I work well with a variety of age groups, and am particularly interested in those in the second half of life. Having extensive background in the  medical field enables me to work well with those who have acute or chronic medical conditions.

Being a life long artist with public as well as private installations, I am also interested in working with creatives.

​Counseling

I have studied and experienced depth psychology, an approach informed by the Jungian understanding of becoming comfortable in our own skin, so to speak. 

This understanding allows for the emergence of the soul through deep exploration of self and awareness of our connection with spirit.

“There are no drugs that will make you immune to stress or to pain, or that will by themselves magically solve your life’s problems or promote healing. It will take conscious effort on your part to move in a direction of healing, inner peace, and well-being. This means learning to work with the very stress and pain that are causing you to suffer.”

"The secret of living well is not in having all the answers but in pursuing unanswerable questions in good company. 

It's not that we have a soul, but that we are a soul.”
