Selected "2017 South Haven Best Family Therapist."  With 30+ years experience as a licensed clinical social worker,  Jungian trained dream analyst, and trained mediator, I help clients find therapeutic solutions which enrich lives, mend bridges, heal broken hearts and wounded spirits.  Through individual, family, and marriage counseling in both individual and group therapeutic settings, I treat individuals from age five (5) to adults, .

In seeking my help, my clients- (I do not use the term patients), and I work as a team using talk therapy, healing techniques, and exercises to enable you to reach your fullest potential and find your emotional, mental, physical, and mental well-being.

 As the script writer, director, and producer of your life, you will set the agenda for each of our counseling sessions and the overall goal of our therapy work together for a healthier, happier YOU!  If you do the work of therapy, you and your life will never be the same!

I do not assume the role of a parent who dictates what a client should do, nor do I claim to be a guru who holds all the answers.  You have the inner resources necessary to sort through the important issues in your life – with the support of a guide who can hold a mirror to you, help you see yourself more clearly, ask pertinent questions, and assist you on your journey. I am honored to serve as a “trusted guide” for my clients and rejoice with you in the achievement of your goals for a happier, healthier you. 

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
