Relationships can be difficult and I believe that the relationship we cultivate with ourselves is of utmost importance in the way we communicate with others. Are we accepting and compassionate when we notice mistakes or are we critical and judgmental? By improving our ''inside voices' we can alleviate much of the stress and tension in our lives. When working with individuals, couples, or groups, I remain unbiased and non-judgmental as I attempt to be a "clear mirror" for Self discovery. I believe that "life doesn't happen TO us. It happens FOR us." As an Imago therapist, I enjoy working with couples very much.

My work is based on a positive theoretical orientation which assumes that all individuals possess an innate desire for emotional/mental health. A person enters therapy with a strong wish, whether conscious or unconscious, to overcome obstacles and free themselves from constraints that are holding them back. I find that each individual needs a slightly different approach in order to accomplish these goals, so I make adjustments in technique for each specific case. I truly enjoy the experience of guiding my clients through this process and consider it a privilege to play such an important role in a person's life.

Welcome! I am glad you are here. I specialize in helping adolescents and adults overcome anxiety, panic attacks, and trauma, as well as other life difficulties. When my clients begin therapy they are usually 'weighed down' by negative emotions, keeping them from enjoying their lives. These painful emotions are often generated from difficult experiences in childhood and/or from traumatic experiences. By the end of therapy, most clients' experience relief, greater calmness, and an enhanced ability to embrace and enjoy life.
