When life is difficult the resulting symptoms usually include depression, anxiety, fear, anger and/or withdrawal. Rather than avoiding these states I have helped hundreds of clients turn them into resources, significantly improving their lives --usually after only a few sessions. I have 25+ years experience working with couples, individuals, families and groups, and have supervised 20+ new therapists. I specialize with couples, helping them to move beyond arguing, tension, anger, resentment and distancing into happy couples. My clients turn their problems into workable solutions.

Life can be very busy and overwhelming at times, with work to tend to, errands to run, people to see, a house to clean and dinner to cook, there seems to always be something that needs taking care of. But what about you? While you're so busy taking care of the "to-do's" in your life, who is busy taking care of you? Living this way can be VERY exhausting, and leave you questioning, "what do I need and want out of life?"
