I welcome you to my website and hope you find it helpful.

With over 36 years of experience helping people I have seen an amazing increase in the positive outcomes achieved in the informed psychotherapy I practice. These improvements are a result of the accumulation of knowledge, experience and cutting edge therapies.   

Though I am a full time psychotherapist, I am the founder of the Grief STEPtm Programs and it's Say the Right Thing and Do the Right Thing Trainings, and an Approved Consultant for EMDRIA, Certified in EMDR treatment for trauma, Certified in Clinical Hypnosis, and an approved trainer for the ICISF. I look forward 
to hearing from you.  

Is this you? If it is I might be able to help.
