My own personal experiences that has influenced my work with my clients has been my travels and watching and interacting with the different peole in my life. Since I have seen so many different people throghout my growing up years ( Military Brat) and adulthood, I think people are fascinating.. In addition to my counseling practiceof 40 years, I have always loved to paint. For most of my life, I have managed to paint and have become a professional artist. This gives my brain a great "outlet". I paint wildlife scenes, peoples pets and portraits.

I am a Military Brat and I have lived in may states throughout the US and I have lived in many places in Europe. I like the many diverse people that I have met. I have about 40 years of experience in the mental health field and I love it. My approach in therapy is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and just plain common sense. My specialties are depression, anxiety ,bipolar and family issues. I initially inform my clients that therapy is hard work. Then I ask my clients what they would like to achieve in therapy (goal oriented ).Together we work towards that goal. I do not assign "busy:" homework but work that is taylored to that individual. This has been very rewardiong to my clients. They have told me they feel a sense of accomplishment.
