My job, as a Psychotherapist, is to help clients to acknowledge their thoughts and feelings. I provide tools for using thinking differently to help clients feel more satisfied with their lives. The Think-diff Institute is an innovative approach where all the staff take pride in promoting Client Centered Care (CCC). I look forward to meeting you where you are, as a starting place toward feeling better!



"You owe it to yourself to know why you think what you think and do what you do. Then, you may decide whether you still want to think and do things the same way." - Pandora MacLean-Hoover, LICSW

My overall goal is to help people "think differently" in a positive way. I have a creative and enthusiastic approach to life-coaching and office design that focuses on client comfort and choice.










“The spirit of the start is the most marvelous moment at any time for anything.  Because in the start lies the seed for all things that must follow...That is the characteristic of a beginning…” - Louis Kahn, Architect

As a Clinician, I provide grounded, therapeutic support to help clients identify personal goals and pathways for reaching them. I joined Think-diff Institute to be part of a team of therapists who are all creative and dedicated to our clients!








“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.” - Martin Luther King Jr.


I provide helpful tools and alternative ways of thinking to guide the process of positive change. My approach is to tailor treatment to the individual. I believe firmly that each person is an expert on their own lives and is deserving of happiness.
