I have been in professional practice since 1985 and began my own practice in 1994. Over the years I have worked mostly with adults and adolescents. In addition to private practice I've worked in outpatient mental health, day treatment, chemical dependency treatment, schools, and employee assistance programs. I also taught social work at the college level for several years and provide supervision to other professionals.

Born and raised in the Rochester, NY area I attended McQuaid Jesuit High School and then St. John Fisher College for my undergraduate studies. I earned my Masters degree in Social Work from Syracuse University in 1985, and am a New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have practiced in the Fairport, NY area for the past 20 years.

My training has been in cognitive-behavioral and marriage and family therapy, but I consider my greatest training to be my marriage of 29+ years and having three thriving children. For recreation I am an amateur photographer, enjoy playing the guitar, skiing, and hiking.
"Your gentle patience helped get me through a difficult time in my life. With humor you helped me to see where I was getting myself stuck."

"Thank you for your help in my time of need. I am very grateful for your professionalism, excellent advice and your trust. Thanks for helping me get back on my feet again!"

"Our son is doing much better now and we appreciate the way you connected with him and challenged him to do better."

"I can't tell you how much you've helped me and helped me keep my job. I know you've given me the tools I need to cope and not let things overwhelm me and make me sick."
Life is a journey through a variety of landscapes.
Sometimes the path before us is straight forward, while other times the terrain
makes us uncertain about where we are going.

Counseling gives us a chance to get out the compass and look at the map
with someone who can give us objective guidance to where we want to go.

My approach to counseling is down to earth  and practical. I use a solution-focused,
cognitive-behavioral approach that builds on the strengths already present in my clients.
My goal is to create a caring, non-judgmental atmosphere where people can develop
the insights and skills they need to grow and move forward.
