I am a professional, license eligible psychotherapist who brings over 25 years of holistic and alternative healing studies and practice to the counseling setting.  I currently have an office at The Center for Progressive Therapies in the historic district of Manchester, CT. This is a lovely location with ample off-street parking and a very healing and calm atmosphere.

I am a graduate of both the University of Connecticut and Capella University.  After completing my internship at Hartford Behavioral Health, Hartford's top public clinic, I began a private practice in 2004.

I spent 25 years in the IT sector as a computer consultant and chose to pursue counseling as the desire to help called to me.  I appreciate the experiences I gathered up in that environment for all those years because those experiences have proven to be invaluable to me in my work as a psychotherapist.

I live in East Hartford with my adult son and a varying number of Bichons.  One of my children attended a state university and one was distance educated.   Different people flourish in different environments.  I am also proud to be a foster home for Small Paws Rescue.

I am a past president and current board member of the Astrological Society of CT.  Studying the cycles of the planets in relationship to human life cycles and the archetypal nature of the planets and zodiacal signs has provided me with an additional knowledge set which serves me well in my work.

I am a board member for Center for Progressive Therapies, a community non-profit wellness center.
