For the past 30+ years, I have worked in the field of human dynamics in the capacity of managing human service agencies and programs,  development of community services, and the directing and guidance of programs and people groups.  The last ten of those years has been dedicated to clinical therapy with individuals with various client groups and expertise in the areas of treating those individuals with anxiety and depression.

 If you have come to a point in your life where you need to talk it out with someone who understands and will listen to you.  That will be me.  I can help you sort through the troublesome parts of your life and help you identify possible solutions or just a new way of looking at your situation. Together we will come up with a treatment plan that will work for you.  What I will need from you is your dedication and commitment to work the process.
