People seek me out when they or their family members are in psychological or emotional pain, stress or crisis. Your kids aren't behaving and you want help for them; the career, relationship/marriage is falling apart; you feel depressed and hopeless, or lost; lack confidence, feel angry or someone tells you that you need "anger management"; you might feel shame and humiliation; unfulfilled with your life; dealing with loss and grief; psychological or sexual traumas; phobias and fears. I specialize in treating people who feel "stuck" and want expert help. Let me help.
I use eclectic, evidence-based approaches which fit the individual, in a safe, confidential, warm haven where trust and new patterns of thinking and acting develop. I help you find the alternative patterns and responses and solutions that can be integrated into your life for the changes you want to achieve.
It is important to find a therapist who "gets" you and understands your complexities. I have 20+ years of experience with children, adolescents, adults and couples and have helped people develop solutions, strengths, and skills that can be used for a lifetime. I use a sliding scale based on what you can afford to pay
