Up Close And Personal

I became a marriage and family therapist for many personal and professional reasons. My vocation is the natural outgrowth of my lifelong interest in helping people improve the quality of their lives. I have pursued this interest as a hospital chaplain, minister, teacher, author, marriage and family therapist, and parent.

As a marriage and family therapist, I have helped thousands of people improve the quality of their lives. I see myself as a change agent, helping people discover how to get more of the good stuff and less of the bad stuff from life. Together we work to uncover that glimmering awareness that life can be more gratifying than it is.

With encouragement and mutual respect, I listen to people’s stories and validate their experience. Together we uncover their hidden strengths, personal resources and courage. When people realize there are different ways of relating to others than the way they’ve been living, they blossom.

I am always there to challenge, encourage and support.


Ever since I have been doing counseling and psychotherapy, I have  believed good therapy is not just about what you know, but it is also about who you are. I hope to shed some insight into who I am and what I believe.

My hope is to bring humanness to my counseling. I believe we are all walking together in this journey we call life.

Sometimes, we need a professional who has expertise that we need and don’t possess. I know  I want the professional I need to have what I call “heart.” I believe people are not broken or need to be fixed. People might be lost, hidden from themselves and others, struggling, challenged and sometimes feeling the desperateness of despair.

I believe there is power in hope….hope that by taking action in our own lives we are taking charge of our own lives!

I believe people can change. I wouldn’t be in this business if I didn’t.

I believe that telling one’s story is the beginning of healing, growth and change.

Most importantly, I believe that we can rewrite our stories, write new and last chapters of our story and even look forward to the sequel!

Please feel free to contact me. I would like to help.
