Seeking mental health treatment in itself can be a challenging prospect for many people. I'm glad you are taking this step! I aim to help patients feels comfortable, safe and that they are in partnership with me to meet their goals. By working together, therapy can be a rewarding experience where patients come to understand themselves, relationships, and patterns of interacting in new ways to effect positive change. At times, medication is needed in conjunction with therapy to address acuity of symptoms and augment progress. In addition to individual and family therapy, I offer medication evaluation and management as needed.
