I have over 20 years experience in helping individuals, couples and families 
overcome their difficulties and enrich the quality of their lives.

I believe in the infinite abilities that we all have for creating positive changes in our lives. My goal is to help my clients create a vision of the life and relationships they want, then work with them to make this a reality.
