Announcement icon I am currently offering in office sessions as well as video conferencing and phone sessions.
Feeling overly stressed, disconnected in relationships or just going through a down turn can be very uncomfortable. If you are struggling to figure your situation on your own, I can provide hope, connection and strategies to address current stressors as well as behavior patterns that may have started in childhood. Seeking a therapist thats a good fit for you can be stressful as well. Great things can happen when you do find the right fit. This is very important to me. I am down to earth, experienced in life and have a talent for bringing out the best in people.
I have extensive experience treating relationship issues, anxiety, depression, couples issues, all forms of addiction issues, substance abuse, childhood trauma, codependency, issues related to growing up in a dysfunctional family and self esteem difficulties. I have a gift for connecting people to their inner strengths and talents.
I love the work I do and I am passionate about helping others. My sessions are upbeat and positive and I enjoy teaching time tested skills to my clients. I would honor the opportunity to be useful to you. Call me today! We can set up a time to chat about your goals and determine if we are a good fit for each other.
