For most of my adult life I’ve been a “seeker,” that is, I’ve always been interested and keen to figure out how to live a happier and more fulfilling life. When you’ve been on a personal growth track for most your adult life, you learn a lot about life and people. Effective marriage therapy demands more than academic degrees and credentials – it requires life experience and wisdom, qualities that are at the heart of my counselling practice.
Typical comments I’ve received from clients over the years are, “you’re direct,” “you get to the heart of the matter,” “you make us laugh,” “you’re down-to-earth” and “you’re easy to talk to.” I like being like that and I do my best to make you feel comfortable, safe and relaxed.
Who you choose to entrust your relationship life to
