Change is sacred.

But that does not mean that it is easy. 

Whether we are starting  a new family

or reinventing a job, we need supportive

and caring people helping us see our

goals and cheering us on.

I have been serving people professionally since at least 1988. As a licensed social worker I have provided therapy to children and families, to mentally ill adults, and to people with AIDS and other medical conditions in a variety of settings in the Baltimore region. In 1997 I graduated from the Howard University School of Divinity. Since then, I have led Unitarian Universalist congregations in Wilmington Delaware, and Palmer and Provincetown, Massachusetts, where I served the community for eleven years. I'm also active in the arts, particularly theater and painting.  I am also involved in the Star Island Arts Conference. My one constant is the importance of creativity to the soul. If we can express our true selves – in some area – then we have the basis for understanding, compassion, and courage.

I offer various paths to growth.  

  • As a licensed independent Clinical Therapist I offer Cape Cod residents access to cognitive behavioral therapy to address mental health and growth issues.
  • As a Life CoachI can help you identify and reach specific goals in the areas of work, health, relationships, money, creativity, service, and spirituality.
  • As a Spiritual DirectorI can help you explore your beliefs and doubts and find fulfilling spiritual resources and practices.
  • As a Clergy Coach, I can help you strengthen your skills with new tools and resources, and find greater professional and spiritual satisfaction.
  • ...and as a Wedding Officiant on Cape Cod I can help you find the words to express the deep wonder and integrity of your commitment, and create a fun and beautiful ceremony.
