Announcement icon Sessions now available during business hours utilizing FaceTime or Zoom. I am offering flexible hours for support during this chaotic time.
I believe that my role as a therapist is to provide support for clients who have decided to enter therapy due to any number of concerns. Addressing life's many challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding the right "fit" with a therapist can prove central in attaining the most positive outcome in a therapeutic relationship. I strive to provide an environment rich in understanding and empathy while helping clients achieve personal goals and reduction of emotional symptoms such as anxiety and depression. My goal is to provide clients with a strong sense of self- awareness while building on individual strengths.
I assist individuals and couples when life transitions such as relationships, professional decisions,pregnancy/postpartum, moving or college may cause stress, anxiety, depression, or irritability. Having over 20 years experience in women's health care, I am able to assist with health related concerns that affect both mind and body,
I provide both short and long-term therapy depending on the needs of the individual client. My skills as a therapist include the innate ability to readily connect with clients. I create an atmosphere of warmth, trust, and collaboration with my clients while paying close attention to individual needs and concerns.
