  • Part time


i have worked in the field of mental health, both as a therapist, social worker, and educator for the past 30 years plus. i meet with individuals one on one, couples, in groups, or merely as a consultant. i do marriage and family therapy, have worked with children of all ages, adolescents, and those in serious relationships. i have done alot of work with addictions of all kinds, sexual abuse, grief work, and career evaluations. i have worked a great deal with our wonderful senior population, and with those who are mentally challenged. i have experience in crisis intervention, and more recently i have been evolving my practice away from that of just mental health and more toward a positive psychology and the field of life coaching. In coaching, i can help you with relationship issues, those just needing support, those preparing for retirement, and in general, those who want more out of life!
