About Me

I completed my Masters degree  in Clinical Social Work in 1994 and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 1996.  My initial training focused on structural and strategic family therapy.  Since 1998 I have deepened my work by studying and practicing Coherence Therapy and then in 2002 began in depth training in Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS).  I am both a Certified Coherence therapist and a Certified IFS practitioner.
“Walking my talk” is essential to me.  In other words,  I know that my own personal healing and growth are the most significant basis from which I am able to be effective with my clients.  So, I pay attention to this and put on-going effort into my own growth and tend to my own needs so that I may have the best chance at making a difference with my clients.  I love my work and it is a privilege to do it.  I look forward to exploring how I may be of service to you.
