Specializing in the Unique Needs of Women
I provide individual (adult) and couples counseling.
I have more than thirty-five years experience in healthcare, divided between nursing and psychotherapy. You can see from my list of specialty areas that many of the conditions I treat have a biological component. I will encourage you to examine how you feel physically as well as emotionally. Treatment is incomplete if it does not address your state of being as a whole. I do not prescribe medications but if we agree that an evaluation for medication is warranted (or some other kind of adjunctive treatment might be beneficial) I will help you identify a suitable provider. I am very comfortable collaborating with psychiatrists, other physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, acupuncturists, and other health care providers in order to help you feel your best.
My goal is "genuine healing" in the way Larry Dossey, MD, has described it:
"Genuine healing has always been about the integration of the physcial and the spiritual, psyche and soma, into a harmonious whole."
