I have been in private practice for over 45 years, working with people ages 17-85 from all walks of life. I work with individuals and couples, short term and long term, in person and online. I use a client-centered, holistic approach in my work to help you achieve your personal goals and move towards wholeness and balance.
Note: My path to becoming a therapist was originally through the creative arts. In 2006 my award winning documentary “Granny D Goes to Washington” was broadcast on PBS. My profile appears in Bruce Frankel’s book: “What Are You Going to Do With the Rest of Your Life.” Creative expression remains a lifelong pursuit.
