With over 25 years of experience in psychology and counseling, combined with a Doctorate in Psychology from the University of Denver, my training and practice have helped people make a positive change in their lives and relationships. In addition to providing counseling for couples, adults, teenager and young adults, I provide specialized assistance for those couples and individuals in search of infertility and adoption counseling.

There are significant issues that arise when one tries to navigate through the "infertility crisis" that comes with trying to make tough decisions about adoption, using a surrogate or undergoing other treatments (IVF, egg/sperm donor, etc.) to build a family. Together, we'll help maneuver through the emotional process individually and as a couple throughout the entire process.

People seek counselors and psychologists to help untangle the yarn-ball mess that we are sometimes confronted with. But even when these emotional mine fields can be arduous and troublesome, they are not impossible to navigate through. We start by developing a safe haven to sort out the problems and issues so that anything can be brought forward and discussed so that we can begin the process of navigating through the mine fields. Together, we will discover paths that will elevate the clouds that burden our lives and let the more positive elements of life so that can build a stronger foundation.
