I believe strongly in the dignity and worth of each person. When you enter my office, my first goal is to begin developing a working relationship with you and to inquire about what you think the issue may be. Each person is an expert in his or her own life and has developed strengths to overcome obstacles. It is my job is to draw on these strengths in order to help you accomplish your goals. While I work with individuals from all religious, ethnic, socioeconomic, gender and sexual backgrounds, I am especially concerned with disenfranchised individuals who may not feel society values their input. I am especially interested in gay & lesbian concerns, women's issues and gender identity. Rest assured, no matter what your background, I will partner with you to help you overcome your struggles.
