Personal Life


I love my work.  Therapy can be both serious and playful.  I try to be as real with my clients as possible because it's good for both my clients and myself.  I also love water.  I've been swimming my whole life and still enjoy competing occasionally.  I am a fitness enthusiast and also work as a Holistic Personal Trainer helping clients integrate mind and body.  In  addition to continually being in my own personal therapy (which I believe all therapists should) I consider exercise, meditation, inspirational reading, and writing to be part of my daily mental and physical hygeine.  I practice what I teach as a therapist and continually set aside time for my own healing and growth.  I also love waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and snow skiing.  I don't hide my personal life from my clients as I believe bringing as much of my humanity into the therapy room as possible serves my clients in their growth and healing.
