I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor (LISAC) in Arizona with 10 years of private practice experience working as a mental health counselor, and another 20 years of executive level Human Resources work. I am a published author of healthcare and self-help books and articles. I have worked with couples with a wide range of concerns including one or both menbers of the couple struggling with depression, anxiety, infidelity, mismatched values and priorities, communication issues, parenting issues, identity issues, OCD, ADHD, and addiction issues. Long term relationships, as well as newer relationships, are subject to a need for a tune-up. If a couple does not work on, or pay attention to their relationship, the reationship will tend to drift.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I do not believe in making judgments, but prefer to help you think through your situation, options and possible positive or negative consequences. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I also like to use strenth-based counseling, and when possible, I work for a solution focus. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek help for a more fulfilling and happier life, and to take the first steps toward a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
