Clinical Experience: I have worked with adults of all ages on a myriad of concerns and with couples at every stage of relationship (dating, pre-engaged, early married, long term marriages, senior marriages).

Types of Clients: I have experience working with clients who work in a variety of contexts: medical, pastoral and church, international mission context, schools, law offices, public agencies, self-employed settings, home (stay at home moms and dads), tech industry, restaurant, non-profit sector – to list a few.
