In life we try to balance the responsibilities of work, school and day-to day life so we can enjoy our time with our family and friends. However when we struggle with issues related to trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, depression, or major life changes it becomes harder to find the enjoyment in life. I've been working with youth, young adults and their families for 10 years. My goal is to help you figure out how to meet the demands of day-to-day life while also seeking the opportunities to enjoy life as well.

I have been in practice for over 35 years. I am most interested in working with people who are wanting to make substantial changes in their life. Often people have been to other therapists and tried other approaches before they come to me. They come to me realizing they are not progressing. Posssibly their previous work had not been in depth or there had been trauma in their background and it was not dealth with. Sometimes people are not even aware they have been traumatized. If you have chronic depression, anxiety and unhealthy patterns there maybe unresolved trauma.

I can attest,having worked with many clients over the years, I have witnessed time and time again the true value that a psychotherapeutic relationship can provide. Through hard work, growing authenticity, and commitment, a therapeutic relationship brings forth genuine opportunities for new & useful insight, new eye opening perspectives, the application of new and working coping skills, a freedom from debilitating challenges like anxiety, panic, depression, a renewed & focused life plan, significant transformational changes, and more. Therapy can have a significant impact, once you make the powerful decision to seek treatment, and develop new belief that life can be different.
