Hi there,

Finding a therapist that works for you is an important task. So here is a little about what to expect from me.

I'm an a active, engaged therapist. I use multi creative use of approches, techniques, and knowledge to work with clients.

Education about a viriety of systems and issues, to help you better understand 'why' and 'what to do'. We will examine what works for you, and what doesn't. We'll define your goals and desires, and keep your eye on the prize!!

I often use Visualation techniques to help you go deeper within, or to see yourself accomplishing what you desire, or the heal physical needs. 

I offer intensive short term therapy, in your home. I find the techniques and "homework' are often 'used' more independently. Often clients come back for more short term focused therapy whenever they want.

I do not work in the winter season, but am available by phone.

I have thirty + years of being honnerd and blessed to work with wonderful people. I have been told and appreciated for changing clients life.  It is about you, but it has been mutually rewardig.

Lets talk, give me a call,
