  •   a specific crisis,

  •   a chronic long-term problem,

  •   a deep desire to live life more fully,

  •   or all three  -  take a look here.

Here is the kind of therapy you want, when therapy is what you need.  I love my work, and have been doing it well for 38 years now.  My skills best represent the human side of the therapist’s art - being caring, flexible and open, yet competent and professional.

Take a look inside this website.  There’s a lot of information here to help you get to know me better and for your own use to enrich your life.

It represents help for you to accomplish that creative combination of

   (a)  what your heart desires, and
