More about me

Years in Practice: 20

I have been a Counselor/Therapist/Psychologist since 1989. I am originally from Greenwich, CT., but have lived all over the world due to my husband's military/civilian careers; he is now retired from the US Air Force, but remains on call with the Reserves. We have three adult daughters, 8 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

I have worked with clients of all ethnic, cultural, economic, and religious status'; in mainly the arenas of Alcohol/Drug, Child Abuse and Neglect, Spousal Abuse(Domestic Violence), Parenting, Grief, Death/Dying. My approach to Counseling is Cognitive-Behavioral and Humanistic.

I have worked many years with the families of military and the Service Members (all ranks).

All patients are highly respected and addressed to their individual sensitivity with the utmost treatment of compassion by me. My dialog is to meet the patient's specific /unique needs.

I am a good listener and readily believe change can happen; with small steps. If you are willing to accept my support and guidance , I will be here for you.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
