About

Dealing with depression, anxiety or stress can be overwhelming — it isn’t easy to do. Every one experiences “ups and downs” in life but some “downs” can be more problematic than others. Let me help you. I offer compassionate and honest help for: repetitive relationship problems, difficult with emotional intimacy or closeness, problems at work or school, periods of marked depression or anxiety, over-consumption of alcohol or drugs, compulsive or addictive use of a computer, phone, tv, shopping, food, exercise, work or obsessive thinking and vulnerability to self injurious or self-sabotaging behaviors.
Confidential, caring and personal help is my specialty. My approach is "user-friendly" and collaborative. We start where you are and together determine how to proceed. I am a trained professional that can help you see how feelings, thoughts and behaviors are interconnected -- helping you to uncover new solutions that couldn't be seen before.
Psychotherapy can have profound positive effects on your life and the life of those around you -- better relationships, solutions to specific problems and a reduction in feelings of distress.
