Welcome to my website! You may already be familiar with my reputation through my extensive work in the Richmond-metro, Virginia area. Providing considerate and non-judgmental counseling has been the hallmark of my work. I have been a practicing therapist for over 20 years and have worked closely with individuals, children, couples and families to help in times of challenge and loss. My practice is located in Midlothian, Virginia, 10 minutes from Richmond, the center of the Commonwealth.
While my credentials can elaborate on my expertise, I am most proud of the many hundreds of people in crisis with whom I have had the privilege to work. Please consider me an experienced guide to help you and your loved ones on the sometimes difficult path of life.
If you would like to schedule an appointment, please contact my office between 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday - Saturday 804-363-6437.
