Life can be messy and painful and beyond frustrating. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families to cope with a variety of challenging "life curve balls". No matter what you are facing and/or experiencing, there is a path that leads to understanding, growth, and healing. I have the utmost respect for my clients and their life journeys. When life circumstances provoke fear, anger, sadness, or suffering, we have an opportunity to face these challenges and ultimately become even better versions of ourselves.

I specialize in working with couples, families and many clients suffering from trauma, relationship issues, phobias, anxiety disorder and depression.
Saturdays and evenings appointments available. Am I the right therapist for you? Helping client's is the primary goal of every therapist. What can you do for me that the others can't? That is a valid question. Many healthcare providers provide symptom management rather than treating the main problem. I mainly use Solution Focused Therapy to focus on client's present and future and to find solutions for their problems. The therapy is not about me; its about you. However, in addition to my years of education, I bring a life-time of personal life experience and an extensive personal knowledge to the sessions.

Are you experiencing difficulties at home, work, or in significant relationships with others? Are you looking to find a deeper level of connection and passion in your life? So much of our energy goes into building a happy home, a loving relationhip, a thriving family and a successful career. However, sometimes these successes do not bring us the happiness we want and we are left feeling unfulfilled and vulnerable. I believe therapy is a special opportunity to understand yourself more deeply and make any changes necessary to improve and create the life, work and relationships that you most deeply want.
