It is my belief that the most healing aspect of therapy is the therapeutic relationship. For it is only through this foundation that our deepest and most personal wounds can be healed. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families and teens and helping patients gain a greater understanding of themselves and the important people in their life. My goal is to empower patients to be vulnerable and honest with themselves and others and thereby make healthy life choices and impact change in their relationships.

Relationships and Life Transitions can be challenging. Successful partnerships don't happen by accident. DISCOVER individual blocks to become the partner you want to be. CREATE a relationship that brings out the best in you. CHANGE unproductive thoughts and behaviors that keep you stuck. I am skilled at helping you learn and practice skills which can lead to a more fulfilled personal and professional life. I also work with "mixed agenda", couples (couples on the verge of a break up), who need short term counseling to help them make their own decision about what their next steps will be.

How we think about our experiences can greatly influence how we feel and act. When we feel our quality of life is poor, anxiety, worry and depression can emerge. In some cases, biological factors can also lead to alterations in mood. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) have been found to be helpful in assisting individuals to alter their behaviors, and restore their quality of life. I subscribe to CBT and IPT and provide treatment to assist individuals in developing better strategies to improve their ability to manage the challenges life presents.
