About My Clients

My work has involved both in-patient and outpatient programs for substance use disorders, personality disorders, bipolar disorders, depression, anxiety and the hopelessness and despair that can make a person wish to end their journey prematurely. Further I have worked with adults that have an extensive history of trauma that may have started in childhood and with adults who have a history of domestic violence both as a perpetrator and as a victim.

My Background and Approach

I have been trained in EMDR and am a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. My graduate education includes a doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in Experimental Psychology from Arizona State University (1989) and a Masters of Art in Counseling (2014) from Ottawa University. Before I entered the counseling profession, I was residential faculty at Phoenix College teaching classes in Psychology, Sociology and Women's Studies for 25 years.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Counseling is a process that you control and drive. I am along for the ride, to help you understand the map and how to navigate the road. You tell me what you would like to have happen--what is troubling you now and how you would like to feel when we are finished. Sharing your story with a stranger is sometimes hard but sometimes easier than sharing it with someone with whom you have history. My role as your counselor/therapist is to become your ally on this therapeutic journey and to provide a safe space where you can talk and be yourself without fear of judgment. I promise to be honest with you and support you as you explore who you are and become accepting of yourself. I will work to earn your trust and to shine a light on the road ahead.
