Prior to starting my psychotherapy and counseling practice, I had many years of
experience as a psychotherapist and team leader at the Veterans Administration. In
my work with combat vets from the Vietnam era up through my work with OEF/OIF
veterans, I have experienced first hand the honor, sacrifice, and bravery of our
nation's warriors. I know the impact that substance abuse, unresolved trauma, and
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder have on many of those who have served our

I am also committed to working with LGBT veterans healing from homophobia and
having to serve under the painful experience of "don't ask, don't tell". As a group

I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience working in the
mental health field. My work is solution oriented and psycho-dynamic in nature, and
filled with humor, curiosity, and compassion for others. I work relationally with
individuals, couples, children, groups, and other relationship configurations.
