With my experience and training, and your motivation to make a change, we can achieve great things together.

In my professional, as well as personal, experience, I have found that problems rarely stand alone. They become patterned into the complex fabric of our lives, penetrating several areas. This is where having a broad background helps. My experience and knowledge base covers the full spectrum of ages, genders, sexual orientations, and problems which allows me to see connections on many different levels (ie. developmental, individual, nervous system, physiological, as well as within the family and relationship systems that we live within). This perspective range and experience greatly helps me in successfully guiding people on their paths to personal growth.
