Providing Psychotherapy for Healing and Growth
I provide counseling services in a private practice setting. I work with individuals, couples and families specializing in treating anxiety, depression, loss & grief, life transition and relationship difficulties. I am well experienced and trained in marriage counseling. My style is strongly relational with a focus on internal dynamics and psychological growth. My goal is to provide a safe and caring environment where you can speak honestly and discover ways to solve problems as well as bring about emotional and interpersonal growth.
My first career was in ministry with students in the United States and Eastern Europe followed by nine years serving as a spiritual resource for diplomatic leaders in Washington, DC. I have had a broad range of experience with people from all walks of life and many cultural backgrounds. I have lived and traveled widely outside of the United States and have developed a sensitivity to cultural issues. I am in my thirteenth year as a psychotherapist in private practice.
