The Therapist


I have been a  therapist for nearly 20 years. As I move into semi-retirement, I am still energized by how the power of therapeutic conversations can change the way we experience our human struggle.

I now work via Telehealth with individual clients interested in dealing with their family of origin relationships and generational history.

I’m an experienced AAMFT,  MBMFT and MBBHT Approved Supervisor and love helping beginning therapists grow their skill.

“Are you a Christian therapist?”       “What’s a Pastoral Counselor?” 

I am former Lutheran pastor and person of faith.. But you don’t have to be. I always accept each client where they are.

I’m a ‘bilingual’ therapist; I have graduate degrees and decades of experience in both theology and psychology. Whatever way you want to talk about your understanding of the world, I can join in.
