I have thirty-eight years experience working with individuals, couples, families and groups. In addition, I am a professional mediator and arbitrator. I have a Ph.D. in Counselor Education with a cognate in marital and family therapy. I also served as executive director of social service agencies--managing a mental health center and a welfare-to-work program. I am an adjunct professor and continuing education facillitator in graduate programs. My focus is creating as much light as possible in dark places and encouraging healing in mind and body.
