Thank You for Visiting Our Site

There are many reasons to seek counseling and psychotherapy. Whatever yours may be, I hope this website informs you about the services I provide and how they might benefit you.

My practice focuses on TeleHealth and all appointments are virtual. This approach works for many individuals and couples whose schedules do not allow for seeing a therapist in person, or who simply prefer not to do so for convenience or other reasons.

Others may find they are more comfortable with counseling in a traditional office setting. I have written an article on why I choose to focus on TeleHealth. This article can be found at the bottom of this page.


My practice focuses on the treatment of Individuals ages 16 and up who suffer from mood or anxiety disorders, with a particular focus on the treatment of attachment and other early childhood traumas.

In addition, I work with couples to improve communication and resolve attachment trauma.

My approach to counseling and psychotherapy can be found in a separate article under Forms and Articles on this website.


I have been licensed for more than 22 years and have worked in direct service and as a supervisor for those who provide direct service to individuals with severe and persistent mental illnesses.

Although working with severe mental illness is no longer the focus of my practice, my experience working with these disorders gives me broad experience of how the mind works and how to help people overcome their unique struggles.

You can read more about me in the About Us section of this website.

On the left-hand side of this page, you will find a link to an article that explains my approach to couples counseling and what to expect as we work together.

Thank you again for taking the time to visit this page, and I look forward to working with you.

Why do I solely use telehealth to provide counseling and psychotherapy?

There are technical reasons and personal preference issues, including the preferences of clients and my own.

The technical reasons I find telehealth beneficial for clients and me include issues like the ease of accessing therapy. I have found that my clients benefit from being able to access their sessions wherever they happen to be. For example, I have had a client stop in the rest area at the top of a mountain pass to have their session on the way to work in a distant city on the other side. It has also benefited slope workers or others who regularly need to be away from home.

This benefit holds for couples as well. Often military, or couples who need to be separated for work or other reasons, find benefit in being able to attend an appointment from anywhere. Consistency is critical for therapy, and telehealth makes it easier to stay consistent. The expanded reach of telehealth is another excellent benefit. Anyone who has good internet access can access treatment, even if there isn’t a therapist where they live.

Not needing to drive to an appointment (which involves getting childcare, getting dressed and ready, going to and from the appointment, and other necessities of traveling that take time out of their day) meets an essential need for some clients. Telehealth allows clients to come to counseling in a way that is most convenient for them.

It has also proven to be my preferred way of providing therapy. For many of the same reasons clients enjoy utilizing telehealth, I have found it fits my current needs and lifestyle. For instance, I can provide services from other places while visiting aging parents or grandkids who live in other states, while still providing services. It is a time saver for me as it is for clients and allows me to work on other projects requiring that extra time. In addition, it enables me to have a much more flexible schedule, allowing things like providing therapy in the evenings, which I would be less inclined to do if I had to commute home from an office.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic requiring services to be provided via telehealth, most people no longer worry about privacy and telehealth; the world of Zoom meetings has relieved some of the concerns. If you are still concerned, the system we utilize is fully encrypted, and you should know that HIPAA requirements are the same in using telehealth as in face-to-face, in-office counseling.

Also, I was initially concerned that therapy over the internet might be less effective than face-to-face, in-person therapy. This has not proven to be the case. Studies have shown telehealth therapy to be as effective as in-person therapy. A good article from Psychology today can be found here.

Of course, telehealth, like in-person therapy, is not for everyone. If you are looking for in-person therapy, I recommend, where you can look up many local therapists who have regular office hours. You can compare therapists and find one that is a good fit for you.

Whether you work with me or someone else, I wish you the best as you seek to improve your life.
