My practice focus is on building, healing and developing strong personal and intimate relationships - which are truly the cornerstone of psychological, physical, and spiritual health. My specialty is working with couples and giving them the skills necessary to maintain a successful relationship. I also have a strong interest in women's issues; especially in the development of improved SELF-ESTEEM though all of their transitions in life. While I am especially interested in helping women, I also have a bulk of experience in helping men through their relationship and proffessional difficulties. I offer unique interactive communication that promotes positive change.

For more than two decades, I have made a commitment in the professional realm to understand the human condition. What I have learned is that we are unique yet unifying and vast yet reachable. It is my passion to take a journey with you and learn about what makes you who you are and how this interplays with the world and relationships around you. Everyone has a story. If you don't know yours, then we'll write it together. Emotional success often means life success and is contingent on not just knowing your story but telling your story.

"Well, it's always something!" How often have we all heard and said this phrase. Yet it's true. Life is always presenting us with"somethings" - loss, problems, distress, despair - obstacles to our happiness and well-being, and to our relationships. It is a very wise decision to reach out for help. Yet I know it is also stressful to try to decide on a therapist. Let me share with you who I am and my approach as a therapist. I unfailingly believe it is possible for people to make positive changes in their lives and to heal past and present trauma and pain.

When you are suffering, personally, within your family or in a relationship, I offer therapy that goes beyond just talking about the past. I use an educational and directive Mind/Body/Spirit approach that assesses your current life situation, formulates new goals and gives you tools to use every day. I make therapy comfortable, positive and aim to get results as quickly as possible. I see myself as an active facilitator in a joint process, not an expert-patient relationship. I believe that everyone intrinsically knows what they need, it's my job to assist you on that journey.

Toady's busy lifestyles confront us with many personal/professional challenges. Assuming multiple roles can impact our ability to meet the responsibilities of our daily lives. Financial stress, work/school responsibilities, relationship struggles and parenting problems can cause depression, anxiety, health concerns, anger, or alienation. Without an adequate support system, life stresses often seem insurmountable; the high cost of health care often discourages individuals from seeking outside help. I offer flexible fees for those committed to doing the work.

Change is an inevitable part of life. The lack of change or too much change can overwhelm us and derail our growth. No one escapes hardship and stress. During these times we need the trust, respect, and empathy of an impartial professional especially when family and friends are just too close to the matter. With more than 20 years of clinical practice, I've found that the healthier person reaches out for help beyond their immediate sphere. I see myself as a guide facilitating my patients' healthy risk taking and helping them manifest their visions for a better future.
