About

My practice encompasses work with individuals, couples, families, children and group work from diverse backgrounds. My focus is to provide services for those who are struggling with conflicted relationships, anxiety, depression, anger management, parenting and communication issues. I also help clients to deal with life transitions and life stressors by helping them organize their thoughts and feelings to be more effective. A decision to begin therapy can be stressful and difficult; however successful therapeutic outcomes can be tremendously self empowering and rewarding. I strive to provide a safe, compassionate and a non-judgmental environment which is conducive to open dialogue.
Initial sessions focus on getting to know the person/family, learning about what brought them to therapy, agree on goals and instill hope. In subsequent sessions person/family is assisted in exploring patterns that are not working well for them and gain insight into what may be done to overcome obstacles.
Understanding a person and their background and sensitivity towards their values and approach to life is part of the process. My approach to therapy is holistic, solution oriented, strength based work. I welcome the opportunity to work with you and allowing me to share your journey towards healing and growth.
