My approach is existential, constructivist, multiculturally-based, and person-centered. Essentially, I believe that the journey to healing is deeply personal for each individual. My role as a counselor is to help my clients find their way to the changes they wish. I feel that it is very important to empower the client and respect their journey and needs based on who they are and how they see the world. I feel that counseling is akin to taking a journey together; you are behind the wheel of the car and you know where you want to end up. I see my role as the navigator; I have really good maps that have helped people make similar journeys. The key is finding the map that works for you, which we will do together.

I work with children, adolescents and adults. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from therapy for depression and grief counseling to parenting support and training.  In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help attain the personal growth and balance for which they are searching.

Because of my work full-time as a professor outside of private practice, I typically only take a few clients on at a time in order to devote the time, attention, and services that are important for each client.  If I cannot take in a new client at the particular time you contact me, I will provide you with a referral to someone who meets your needs.
