Where I practice
I have been a marriage and family psychotherapist for 30 years. I have been working at Kaiser Permanente in the Behavioral Health Department since 2004. My career has had many facets as my life has unfolded. I started my career working with young children and their families in California. After moving to Georgia in 1979, I have worked in schools, mental centers, employee assistance programs, human resources and private practice. Currently, I work primarily with adults individually, couples, families and groups. My passion is to help people create meaning and satisfaction in their lives and to live as their best self.
About my practice
I work in the Behavioral Health Department at the Glenlake Medical Center. Half of my time is spent working with groups. I work with an intensive outpatient group, which is primarily for members that have the ability to function compromised significantly and need the intensity of therapy most days. I also have a group called “Return to Work” for those members who identify work as their major stressor. This group meets three times a week for three weeks. Both of these groups are accessed through referral from your behavioral health professional. The remainder of my clinical time is devoted to psychotherapy with individual adults who are struggling through their work, family and lives.
How I thrive
I believe that all of us have a vast amount of potential to be happy and well in this life. However, some days are easier than others to access one's best self. I look both out into the world and inward. I love nature, traveling and being outdoors. My current adventure has been rowing on a crew, which keeps me active. My inward journey to connect with my spirit and renew myself is through art. I am an artist, sculptor and painter. Currently, I am exploring myself through multi-media journaling.
