Although therapy is not "fun", I am not your typical "therapist". As a prospective client, it is important to familiarize yourself with the differing values, goals, practice styles and skill sets that separate each of us as "therapists". Admittedly, I am a bit unconventional in that you won't find me sitting quietly for an hour nodding my head while you carefully and methodically pour out your heart. I'm much too passionate, committed and invested to play the role of "silent therapist". Instead, I believe in building relationships through open and honest communication coupled with sincerity, acceptance and mutual respect.

I value the importance of hope and inspiration, especially in the face of adversity. Clients should leave each session feeling motivated & empowered. Success in treatment is not achieved through self-promotion, but rather by way of guidance, insight, support, objectivity, problem-solving, & developing the skills necessary to achieve your OWN personal goals.

My methods involve active collaboration & psycho-education based primarily on CBT/DBT strategies. Services are strength-based & solution-focused. Call now for a FREE face to face consultation. Immediate openings, including weekends & after-hour appointments. Insurance is not accepted; however, fees are exceptionally reasonable. Sliding fee scale is used.
