I work with individuals, families, and couples. Ages served are from 10 to 100.
I am committed to serving my community: Gay, Lesbian, Transgendered, and otherwise Queer people.
I was trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing)in 2000; this technique has vastly increased my effectiveness in helping people recover from trauma.
