Announcement icon During our shelter in place order, I continue to offer virtual individual, couple, group and workshop sessions through HIPPA-compliant Zoom
You deserve respect & professional support for your individual strengths, goals, & needs. I collaboratively work with motivated people who seek relief, healing, growth, & better outcomes. You may be experiencing consequences of loss; trauma; relationship challenges & difficulties; estrangement from family; general anxiety, depression, or dissatisfaction. I value personal rights and healthy connections, understanding of family, relationship and group influence. With over 27 years in the field, I'd like to help you navigate through difficult situations and reach your personal goals.
Family, group, and relationship influence can result in inaccurate, self-limiting beliefs and unhealthy patterns. Discovering what causes unhappiness and distress and learning more effective skills can lead to a healthier, more fulfilling life. I receive feedback that clients feel heard, understood, and that our work together leads to successful outcomes.
I bring personal & professional experience into our work with individuals, couples, families & groups. I've worked with a diverse population with many challenges in living. My Certifications: Certified Group Psychotherapist, Grief Therapist, Family Mediation, DV Therapist. Office, phone & internet sessions including online supportive workshops.
