Divorce has become a new phenomenon in our culture.
At any age, there are developmental, transitional and often unexpected circumstances that challenge us in life. Be it aspects of parenting, the social or emotional challenges of being a child or teenager, or concerns about life transitions as an adult, my approach is safe and comfortable. I work from a place of patience, sincerity, humor and nonjudgement. I want the counseling experience for my clients to feel helpful, worthwhile and to be a journey to better understanding and personal growth.

I have many years' experience working with people going through life transitions like divorce , remarriage, launching children.
Life offers us many obstacles along the way and it is my practice to walk with my clients through dark days and confusing times to support new growth and balance in their lives. Over 30 years of practice has shown me that it takes tremendous courage to seek therapy and embark on the journey towards clarity and solid ground. I believe that therapy is a partnership between us built on a trusting relationship where we will explore both past and present life experience. I hope you will find my approach to this work supportive and empowering.

My specialties include working with depression, anxiety, and relationship issues, as well as issues surrounding marriage and divorce .
I've worked successfully with adults and adolescents for 20+ years. Many therapists are seasoned and technically sound, but to many clients, something still feels lacking. I receive repeated feedback regarding clients' appreciation of my nonjudgemental support and guidance, my ability to understand the great shame people feel about their relationships and lives. I have a knack for forming trusting relationships with teens, allowing them to experience open communication, which, over time, tends to replicate itself within the family system. I can help you with feelings of insecurity, anxiety, depression. I understand addiction issues and treatment strategies that work.

I also work with adults with work stress, depression, anxiety, and divorce .
There is no such thing as an ideal client other than one that takes the first steps to help better themselves. I am here to aid the process. Everyone has a purpose. Mine is to help people using different modalities catered to individual needs. I hope that every person that I assist learns self confidence, gains emotional intelligence, learns to self reflect, and builds healthy strategies to face the difficulties life can bring. We cannot always control the things in our paths but we can learn to control ourselves and how we cope with hardships. We have the ability to turn unfortunate events into beautiful testimony.

At some point we all struggle to adjustment to life's changes; it's normal to feel stuck and I believe people have what it takes to adjust. Couples often come to me for help in distress and are confused about how or why their relationship has derailed. I am dedicated to helping people build stronger; more intimate relationships and I use several modalities when attempting to help couples in distress. A high percentage of my caseload at any given time is comprised of couples.
