I am client- centered, believe strongly in the power of humor and have an enormous respect for the individuality of persons.  I am trained as a somatic experiencing therapist, which employs body awareness in treating trauma.  As a grandparent, I have a seasoned perspective, take things in stride a little more, and expect the unexpected.  Through the years many couples and families have shared their pains and hopes, and I have journeyed with them through listening and prayer.   I enjoy working with people of all ages.
