"Hopeless, stressed out, trauma, communication issues? It takes courage to face challenging situations in life and to decide to reach out to a mental health professional for counseling. I use counseling strategies that aim at alleviating emotional stress that occur in depression, anxiety, and emotional trauma in adults and children. Poor self-image and communication problems are also areas that I feel confident to work with. My overall goal is to help alleviate your emotional pain and to help you find useful coping strategies for your personal needs."

"Are you and your partner stuck in conflict or feeling distant from one another? Do many of your talks end up in arguments? Has there been a breach of trust or confidence? Perhaps you are experiencing a lack of support or appreciation, and worried that you won't find that spark that was there in the beginning. You can regain the closeness and trust that you once shared and learn to reconnect deeply again. By identifying and changing self-defeating patterns, you can learn better ways to communicate, and deepen empathy and compassion. These are common solveable problems, and you can overcome them."

"I have spent many years working with a number of different populations, from Autism Spectrum Disorders to Eating and Feeding Disorders. The beauty of working in mental health for almost half my life is that I truly believe in the power of the therapeutic process and how we address the things in life that are no longer functional. The root cause of the distress is my focus because it demands such intricate and tactful navigation. ​ Emotional distress is a symptom of old burdens, old wounds, and things we carry that do not belong to us. Shedding the anger, shame, and pain of the past is a critical step in healing the present. "

"Something has changed with your child or teen. They seem sad, depressed, or angry and upset a lot more than they used to. And now... It's getting to the point where their behavior isn't ok anymore. You've heard from the teachers, coaches, and family friends. They all notice something is going on and they are concerned. With each passing year, you find it harder to get your child or teen to let you into their life."

Anxiety and depression can affect every aspect of your life - your relationships and family life, your work or schooling, even your self-care and physical well-being. Since 1990 I have helped hundreds of people find greater understanding of their frightening or demoralizing feelings and learn the skills they need to become confident, engaged, and even passionate about life. There are things in life you can't control...anxiety and depression are not among them."
