Why I do what I do

Helping you live a healthier, more balanced life.

One of my greatest passions is to understand what makes people truly happy as individuals, and in relationships. 

I have worked as a marriage, family, and addiction counselor for over 30 years, including 15 in close collaboration with churches in the Harrisburg, Hershey, and York areas. After all this time, I'm more enthusiastic than ever about helping people overcome life's challenges.  I'm looking forward to speaking with you.

I use brief, solution-focused therapy. After just 6-8 sessions, clients can often understand what’s been happening in their relationships, and have a good sense of what to do about it.

Love is not a feeling, but a choice that can be lived and practiced.

I also like playing racquetball, and watching sporting events with friends, especially when the Pennsylvania teams are doing well.
