Hello and welcome. I know this is hard. It is always difficult for a proud person to seek help. It is much more harmful to not reach out, I commend you. Human beings are social animals, we need and desire the comfort of one another. How we meet those needs can be complex. My job as your therapist is to assist you in becoming the best person you can be. I provide individual, relationship, and family therapy. I have a humanistic approach, allowing you to be you. I accept you as you are. Therapy is not to change the person it is to change the way the person perceives themselves.

When life presents challenges, even the most robust and resourceful individuals can become overwhelmed, feel insecure, alone and lost. Psychological consulting can create an environment where acceptance is experienced, healthy coping strategies are developed and resilience is cultivated. Your decision to explore your life through supportive psychotherapy can promote the healing of past emotional injuries and assist with the difficulties of current stressors.

Life is in Session! No matter who you are, life can take its toll! From the day to day stressors of family, business, finances, relationships, or simply navigating the course of your life in today’s cultural and social climate, it is easy to feel depleted and overwhelmed. Especially, when life hits you with the unexpected traumatic blow of loss, grief, abuse, or divorce, one can become lost in an emotional fog, completely uncertain about the future. Nevertheless, whatever you are facing in life, you do not have to go it alone.

I have over 30 years experience in helping people to heal and feel whole again. I like working with couples to help them communicate in ways that bring them closer rather than create distance. I work with individuals struggling with trauma, self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, and other problems that create dysfunctional patterns and symptoms in their life and relationships. It is rewarding to help people who may have felt hopeless, to move in a positive healing direction toward reclaiming their lives and their happiness. I also have a staff psychiatrist available for those individuals who may benefit from medication for depression, anxiety, insomnia.
