Welcome to my Website.
Let's start with you. Where are you now in your life?
Are you . . .
needing someone to talk to who really listens?
coping with feelings of anxiety, sadness, anger, or loss of interest?
needing to change: your self, work, realtionships or family life?
dealing with major life changes?
exploring spiritual dimensions or faith questions?
These are the typical concerns of people who seek my help.
Whenever a critical event convinces us to seek assistance,
it opens the door to uncovering what is going on inside of us
with a trusted professional.
I would like to be that person in your life.
Why select me?
After 40 years of experience as a licensed Psychologist
offering psychotherapy, and more than 25 years as a Spiritual
Director and Retreat Leader, I know the ups and downs of life
at every stage. I have experienced them and I have accompanied hundreds of others on their unique individual journeys.
If you decide to let me become the experienced, honest
and compassionate companion to your own life experience,
I can help you change.
You do not have to stay stuck in an unrewarding life or lifestyle.
A relationship with a Therapist or Spiritual Companion
is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves!
Are you ready to gift yourself?
In such a supportive and encouraging relationship, you can . . .
examine the significant factors that are influencing you in
every aspect of your life;
trust the process of peeling off the layers of self-image and deceit to discover who you really are;
identify what needs to change to make your life more effective and satisfying;
learn self-affirming skills;
identify new coping behaviors and strategies that will make
and discover how a sense of the Holy can expand your hope
