"After 40 years in the service of others, I recognize that maintaining resilience and vitality are essential to continued professional and personal effectiveness. My counseling practice focuses on those who work in the caring professions - especially the fields of counseling, education, emergency services, healthcare [nurses, nurse-practitioners, physicians], ministry as well as police and fire rescue. Together, we explore the balance between other-care and self-care to prevent or treat 'burnout' or 'compassion fatigue' to preserve authenticity, integrity and vocational calling."
"Pastoral counseling / spiritual direction --especially for people whose encounters with traditional religious approaches have been disappointing or troubling. I offer a fresh, open, lively look at life, relationships, grief, worry, changes, responsibility, God, love, and the meaning of it all. Spiritual clarity, rather than "religion" within strike confines, is the path to health, hope, joy, and peace. As the song says, "Faith can move mountains... but only love can give set us free, and only love can give us peace.""

My training and personal style leans towards an expressive and holistic approach where therapy can focus on bringing in the discomfort we experience so that we can understand it, integrate it, and ultimately work with it."
"My goal at Test Northwest is to provide children with an affirming testing experience and parents with answers about their children's intellectual and academic functioning. Parents seek testing for many reasons: admissions, placement, concerns about learning, or assessing for giftedness, Whatever the reason, it is important to me that parents leave the office not with reams of data and an incomprehensible technical report, but rather with actual understanding of my results and a concise, insightful, and user-friendly report that directly addresses the reasons for testing."
