about Me

I'm passionate about helping people change their lives.

 

I work with individuals and couples struggling with relationship problems. Creating harmony in relationship is at the heart of who I am.

 

I also have specialized training working with personality disorders, a difficult to treat, rigid, and maladaptive way of thinking and behaving.  As a result, I'm well prepared to work with a broad array of challenges. 

 

Finally, I ended a successful 20+ year business career to become a therapist, which gives me a unique perspective for working with executives and managers struggling with various challenges.  I am also trained and currently work as an executive coach (Torch).
