Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
The decision to enter counseling is usually born of necessity. We are in pain because the tools we have aren't enough. We need something more and turn to a counselor for understanding and assistance. I am hopeful that the counseling I provide will give you what you need to get through this time, allowing you to continue on happier and healthier.

I'm an experienced counselor who has helped thousands of clients. I have been a leader in the local therapists' chapter and was recognized by CAMFT as one of it's outstanding chapter leaders. I am active in other professional and community groups. Formerly, I worked in business and law.

It takes courage to make the first call and then to actually come in and meet together. I invite you to call or e-mail me and would be pleased to answer your questions.

Many of my clients struggle with anxiety issues including racing thoughts, social anxiety and panic attacks. I also support individuals who have experienced traumatic events and are struggling with distressing and intrusive memories.
