I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology (UW, 1981), currently with over 32 years in private practice. I specialize in work with adults including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered adults. Over the years I have developed a flexible and adaptable approach to psychotherapy with a wide variety of people and issues. In the course of our work together, I may draw from a number of therapeutic models, depending on the experiences and issues you bring to your therapy, and which approaches make the most sense for addressing your specific concerns and goals.
My intention is to create a safe, open and supportive space for you to explore the areas of your life in which you want to make changes, and to help empower you in a process of reflection, growth and healing. We will continually tailor our work to effectively address your specific needs and issues. You can expect me to be a direct, compassionate and involved participant in your therapy process. I see my role as that of a trained guide whose job it is to help you notice, interpret and work with whatever you encounter along your own unique path of healing and change. (Next)
