Life often presents challenges - family conflict, relationships, eldercare, self-care. Choosing a therapist with advanced clinical knowledge offers you the maximum opportunity to experience contentment in life. Relationship difficulties often escalate - working with an experienced therapist increases the probability of a positive outcome. Parenthood can be challenging; while bringing immense joy, pride, and personal growth, it can also add much stress. Caring for an aging parent can be stressful and challenging for you and your parent(s). An experienced counselor assures your well-being and success in all areas of your life.

You're here for a reason. You have likely been trying your hardest to pull things together, but regardless of the constant effort, you feel lost, hopeless, and overwhelmed. It can seem as though frustration and despair are becoming a usual part of getting through each day, and the hope that this will all just go away is fading. You may not believe this right now, but a life of fulfillment and balance IS possible. I've seen it first-hand. And if you find a therapist you truly connect with and trust, you can actually begin to break apart what's been dragging you down so you can focus on what's most important to you in your life.
