Accepting New Clients, Relationships, Premarital, Trauma, Grief

Telehealth, Takoma Park


I employ a whole-person approach to therapy and coaching to help clients achieve balance and harmony in relationships, work, and the spiritual aspect of being human. I bring curiosity, warmth, and humor to the serious issues of childhood and adult trauma; life purpose, calling, and career; relationship and marriage; behavioral addictions (including sex, porn, love, spending, and internet); creativity; codependency; grief and bereavement; and spiritual growth and crisis.

I draw upon varied life experiences in my counseling work. Before beginning my career as a therapist and coach 15 years ago, I directed human resources development for three large public agencies; led professional bands and comedy troupes; conducted management consulting; created award-winning comedy videos; and published essays and cartoons in regional periodicals. I have studied world wisdom traditions for over 30 years and given public trainings in meditation and qigong.
