About My Practice


My work as a therapist has foundation in a strong and trusting client/counselor relationship based on compassion and non-judgment. My practice focuses on deep inner work that encourages self-awareness through a blend of strength based, empathic traditional and holistic strategies to include the teaching of mindfulness techniques. I also believe that people can experience joy and fulfillment in their lives by examining what they value, questioning their view of the world and their place in it, and by taking action that leads to a full life. Evening appointments available. Having worked with the powerful healing dynamic of the human/animal bond with dogs and horses for 20 years, I offer animal assisted therapy with my golden retrievers as appropriate for each client. Therapy dogs help to reduce stress, create rapport between counselor and client, and are consistently non-judgmental. Equine Assisted Pyschotherapy (EAP) is available through my practice, WORK of HEART. Common benefits are increased empowerment; improved self esteem and communication,; enhanced self awareness; and respect for boundaries. Please see my website at for additional information about EAP and services provided by Work of Heart.
