“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln

Being a Psychotherapist and Life Coach has been my passion from my youth.  I have over 20 years of private practice experience serving Individuals and Couples.

The populations that I work with are Adolescents, Adults and Elders.

In our work together my clients find clear guidance and help for their specific needs. It is a relationship of respect and thoughtfulness where the client is able to find healing, answers, solutions and a greater sense of purpose and meaning in their lives.
