I am a knowledgeable therapist who has a broad range of clinical experience with young adults to seniors. My approach to helping you is based on an integrated theory in which client pain, confusion, sadness, worries, fears, frustration and concerns are gently and safely addressed. At the same time we will explore and utilize your unique history, your cultures (e.g. family/work/ancestry) and your strengths, to find positive, workable solutions.
