Licensed Marriage, Family and Child Therapist

Counseling for Individuals, Couples and Families in Asheville.
My specialty is in individual, couples and family therapy.

 I maintain a private practice in Asheville, NC. With over 30 years experience as
a marriage and family therapist, I work with a broad spectrum of clients.

My practice has evolved in these years to a more present moment approach that
heals wounds of the past. Therapy is about bringing awareness and action
to change what doesn’t work in our lives. At any given moment we have a choice
and it is this choice that is at the core of my work.

I am also an artist with a studio in the River Arts District. I use the arts, when
appropriate, as a way of bringing meaning and healing through the creative process.
I find that both my art practice and my psychotherapy practice inform each other.
You can find some of the work I do in using life narratives in art at

I do integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a
highly personalized approach. With compassion and understanding, I
work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain
the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. I ask from
clients that they come in only with curiosity and a willingness to engage.
